noun (plural stories)
- see end.
Middle English (denoting a historical account or representation): shortening of Anglo-Norman French estorie, from Latin historia (see history)
Do not confuse story with storey. Story means 'an account told to people to entertain them' (an adventure story), whereas storey means 'a floor of a building' (a three-storey house). In American English, the spelling story is used for both senses.
