  1. I like that it‘s called „revival“ in English — that sounds so much more positive and welcoming. We call it „neogothic“ … as if it were fake, or a second-rate imitation of the real thing!

      1. I agree — though minus the „ck“ ending, which I don‘t like because it‘s so common these days in „the lady protests too much“ type displays, whatever its true origin. (Though I have no objections against that ending in late medieval or Tudor era texts … that‘s where it belongs, dodgy / nonexistent spelling rules and all!)
