Sinonimi: monetary fund
ETYM Old Fren. font, fond, nom. fonz, bottom, ground, French fond bottom, foundation, fonds fund, from Latin fundus bottom, ground, foundation, piece of land. Related to Found to establish.
A reserve of money set aside for some purpose; SYN. monetary fund.
ETYM Latin provisio: cf. French provision. Related to Provide.
1. A stipulated condition; SYN. proviso.
2. The activity of supplying or providing something; SYN. providing, supply, supplying.
Money set aside by a company to pay for tax or dividend payments that it will have to pay in the future.
A company may use its provisions to add to its working capital, effectively borrowing the money it owes rather than increasing its bank borrowings. However, this strategy carries some risk since the company would become insolvent if, when the time came for the tax to be paid, it did not have the liquid assets to pay the tax. A company may also make provisions against the possibility that some of the money owed by debtors may not be paid, thus becoming bad debts.
ETYM French réserve.
1. Something kept back or saved for future use or a special purpose; SYN. backlog, stockpile.
2. The trait of being uncommunicative; not volunteering anything more than necessary; SYN. reticence, taciturnity.

ETYM Old Eng. stor, stoor, Old Fren. estor, provisions, supplies, from estorer to store. Related to Store.
Or shop; A building or part of a building used for the retail sale of goods. Roman stoae were market stalls enclosed by an arcaded walkway; stores changed little from ancient times until the latter part of the 19th century, when concentration of population and greater availability of manufactured goods gave rise to the department store, in effect a number of small specialty shops under one roof, and to the chain store and the supermarket.
With the spread of chain stores to several cities, all having the same ownership, the relationship between retailers and manufacturers changed. Direct links with factories bypassed middlemen (wholesalers) and lowered costs, in some cases forcing small independent stores to focus on narrow specialties not otherwise available. In the 1970s in the US, to coincide with the population shift out of urban centers, enclosed shopping malls of up to 250 specialty stores, anchored by at least one large department store, were constructed in many suburban areas. These “controlled shopping environments” have music, free parking, movie theaters, restaurants, and, in some instances, even child-care facilities. The idea has been adopted in the UK and elsewhere, although resistance is rising from those who wish to preserve the viability of downtown (urban center) areas.
A supply of something available for future use; SYN. stock, fund.
