One day after school we went to a monument—I lived in West Virginia.
We think of him as leaning heavily on the monument in monument Valley, and he did.
The core problem here is that the monument does not have anything to say, period.
late 13c., "a sepulchre," from Old French monument "grave, tomb, monument," and directly from Latin monumentum "a monument, memorial structure, statue; votive offering; tomb; memorial record," literally "something that reminds," from monere "to remind, warn" (see monitor (n.)). Sense of "structure or edifice to commemorate a notable person, action, or event" first attested c.1600.
