    So what is the etymological derivation of the word peace here?

    DARFC!!! ;-)

    etymological is not the right word,

    e -ti -mo - lo - gi - cal

    etylogical is the right word
    e -ti - lo - gi -cal


    HAHAHAHA! MUHAHAHA LOL YOU ARE WRONG LOL!!!!!! ARGGHHHHH!!!!! DIE DIE DIE~!~

    the m is added to etymology because of certain rules, ety ends with a y so the rule is add a m if you are adding ology.
    ety is the root, rather then etymo.

    how do you like that hotshot HUH?


    so if you have the root word SPY-isnt really a good choice though
    it would not be spyology it would be Spymology
    spymological?
    spylogical would be the word it sounds funny at first but it isnt after a while...

    versus the word bio which ends with an o
    biomolology?
    biomological?

    biological
    biology

    did i win? do i get a prize?

    also you had derivation in the sentence
    in the context (con means together) you used derivation it should have been derivative.

    your sentence properly written should be :

    So, what is the etylogical derivative of the word peace here?


    3 mistakes, you get a D, I hope your parents are proud! you just barely passed etymology class.

    >>>
    One entry found for etymology.

    Main Entry: etymology
    Pronunciation: -jE
    Function: noun
    Inflected Form(s): plural -gies
    Etymology: Middle English ethimologie, from Latin etymologia, from Greek, from etymon + -logia -logy
    Date: 14th century

    1 : the history of a linguistic form (as a word) shown by tracing its development since its earliest recorded occurrence in the language where it is found, by tracing its transmission from one language to another, by analyzing it into its component parts, by identifying its cognates in other languages, or by tracing it and its cognates to a common ancestral form in an ancestral language

    2 : a branch of linguistics concerned with etymologies
    - etymological /-m&-'l-ji-k&l/ adjective
    - etymologically /-k(&-)lE/ adverb

    ety - is the root in my etymology book... just checked, dictionarys have many flaws, and their are differences from each one, I have looked in my world book dictionary(1985) and ety is the root...

    Intelligence is genetical.

    Eastern cultures believe that it's a reflection of all your experiences and knowledges from your past lives. I tend to accept this explanation, as it sounds logical.

    What you learn further on, makes you what you are presently.
    One can be master or evil, it depends on the social-economical-political environment.

    Oh, btw, you probably heard that there's very tiny difference between a genius and a madman (like balancing on the ledge ).

    It's an art to keep both your soul, body and mind healthy
    ( Mens sana in corpore sano ). That's what wise men can do, the so called middle-of-the-road.

    ...so stop sitting in front of your monitors, and go out in the nature!

    I have thought alot about intelligence since the day I began school. I then saw that other kids had problems understanding what I considered as formalities, such as writing and reading.

    I don't want to brag about myself, but I'd say I belong to the 15%most intelligent part of the population.

    Although, I am not really pleased with my intelligence. I have examined it alot, and I have come to the following conclution:

    *I succeed in maths, but I am not really natural gifted in it. Example: I couldn't write the formula for calculating the volume of a ball, but I sure can remember it, once I've seen it.

    *I am good at linguistics, I learned reading and writing early, and I rarely spell incorrectly.

    *I am really good at general knowledge, there is where my real strength is. I would say I belong to the top 1% of the population in this.

    Although, I think that maths is what is important; mathematicians are the ones who work for the future, just look at Einstein.

    I also strongly believe in that intelligence is hereditary, and thus, I also believe that different peoples, especially those who have lived isolated, in general have the same kinds of intelligence among it's population.

    I am Swedish, and I believe that "Swedish" people (the ones who are descended from Vikings), are good in maths, average at linguistics, and bad at general knowledge. Simply, the opposite from what I am.

    I think I have to thank my dad, who mainly descends from Wallons, for being so good at general knowledge.

    I also think that my intelligence has been overastimated because of that I know things others don't know much about, example: I know all capital cities in Europe.

    My point is that I just live and I can learn things already acknowledged by humanity, but I can't acknowledge new things, therfore, I think that people who are good in maths are the most important ones for humanity.

    This post has been very self-centered, and I also want to say that I find this topic very interesting.
