Notes: If you watch shows set in the past, you may know this one
The word rapporteur means “a person who gives reports (as at a meeting of a learned society)
Background / Comments
To me, this word is just a fancy one for “secretary”. As you may expect, this word comes from French; specifically, from the Middle French word rapporter (to bring back, report, or refer). A more common descendant from this word is rapport.
This word entered the language in the early 1500s
