Citadel

I had a student come to my office hours today and ask what a 'citadel' was. I was really tempted to say that it was where Twinsen was held captive by Funfrock.

Of course, it probably wouldn't have helped, and the student would have thought I was crazy (or crazier than I already am), but I LOL'ed.

I have that with a Polish word "kazamaty" meaning a cellar of sorts, or a deep dungeon with a series of tunnels. And for me it was always a widely used word, until I started asking people about it - and like only 10% of people I asked knows about it...

In french, "citadelle" (as citadel is called in LBAs) is more like some sort of castle, like there were during the middle ages.

I always thought it meant some kind of fort in general, rather than specifically a prison.

Isn't it more like a fortress for protecting a town/castle? I always thought of a citadel as being like a walled city where there is a castle.

Whatever it is, it's usually something seemingly impenetrable, a fortified keep or castle, inside or close to a city. May a fortified place of refuge inside a city or a prison - doesn't matter.
