  1. This is I´d say undoubtedly a word derived from French language… (Raconter is a verb which means to tell ).
    I truly like the french derived words in English, particularly due to the fact that they sound completely difference when pronounced… (I learned some French in High School!)…
    Good choice dear Heena… all my best wishes to you. Aquileana ⭐
