Just what does the Match signify in the magazine’s title? Is it a French term, or simply the English word? It’s always struck me as an odd title.
The French Wikipedia says it followed on from a sporting weekly, Match.
Edited to add: Media Monoliths by Mark Tungate (Google Books) confirms this.
Thank you, lely. And a warm welcome to the board, by the way.
Just to complete the answer, “Match” was borrwed from english into french in the late 1820’s, originally used as a term in horse competions.
