Cosmogony, Capitulating

21 Feb

Image made on aviary.com. Yesterday, I discovered this multimedia platform with functions similar to basic abilities of adobe cs4. I found a new friend in this website, below and behold, my first trial image:
  • cosmogony
    • 1690s as “a theory of the creation;” 1766 as “the creation of the universe,” from Gk. kosmogonia “creation of the world,” from kosmos “world, universe” (see cosmos) + -gonia “a begetting.”
  • cosmo-
    • a combining form meaning “world,” “universe,” used in the formation of compound words: cosmography; in contemporary usage, sometimes representing Russian kosmo-, it may mean “outer space,” “space travel,” or “cosmic ray”: cosmonaut. Compare astro-. Origin: Gk kosmo-, comb. form of kósmos cosmos
  • capitulation
    • 1530s, “an agreement,” from M.Fr. capitulation, from capituler “agree on specified terms,” from M.L. capitulare “to draw up in heads or chapters, arrange conditions,” from capitulum “chapter,” in classical L. “heading,” lit. “a little head,” dim. of caput (gen. capitis) “head” (see head). Meaning narrowed by mid-17c. to “make terms of surrender.”
