. Okay, yes, the riddle of the sphinx
is Greek, but this week is about words, not myths. (Spoilers!) English got the word "horizon" from French, which got it from Latin, which… yup… got it from Greek—in this case, horizon kyklos
("bounding circle"), ultimately from horos
("boundary"). And "scholar" also
comes to us from the Greek skhole
(by way of Latin), which meant "leisure, idleness, or learned discussion." Such a Greeky card!
