I have just learned that an Arabic word for "mosque" can also mean "party" or "social gathering." The etymology there isn't hard to figure out, but in terms of this sentence, it's almost as fun as the word I discovered over the summer which meant both "to isolate" and "to join." (And incidentally, I suspect the actual meaning I want is "place of sitting." Arabic words can mean many things.)
