Thanks. > >Petra and Richard > >petra [at] EcoVillage.ithaca.ny.us >607-272-4628 Yes, we made up the word back in 1985. The Danes call it "bofaellesskaber" which translates as "living communities." We didn't think the direct translation was very catchy and we needed a word for this specific type of community housing, soooooo and the rest is history. But there in NO HYPHEN in cohousing!!!!!!
