Baccalaureate (W3)

Engl. "Baccalaureate" bezeichnet den Ausbildungsabschluß des Grundstudiums an US-Universitäten. Das Wort "Baccalaureate" geht zurück auf mlat. "baccalaureatus" = "erster Universitätsgrad", lat. "baccalarius" = "Pächter". Bei der Übernahme des "Pächters" zur Bezeichnung eines Universitätsabschlußes/-grades kam es zu einer Vermischung mit lat. "laureatus" = "lorbeerbekränzt", engl. "crowned with laurel", dem Symbol des Siegers. Auch lat. "bacca lauri" = dt. "Beere des Lor", "Lorbeere", engl. "laurel berry" oder lat. "baculum" = dt. "Stöckchen", "Stäbchen", "Stab", engl. "staff", einem Kennzeichen der Jungakademiker, könnten bei der Begriffsbildung eingeflossen sein.

Dabei scheint lat. "bacca lauri" = dt. "Lorbeere" noch am ehesten als direkter Ursprung Pate gestanden zu haben und den "Baccalaureate" schlicht als "Lorbeerbekränzter" zu bezeichnen.

Das gleiche lateinische Wort "baccalarius" kam auch über altfrz. "bacheler" ins Englische, wo es leicht abgewandelt zu engl. "bachelor". Der engl. "bachelor's degree" entspricht dem niedrigsten akademischen Grad in englischsprachigen Ländern.

Magna Doodle (W3)

Der erste Teil dieser kreidelosen Schreibtafel dürfte auf die magnetischen Eigenschaften dieser Erfindung anspielen ("liquid suspension or dispersion medium filled with tiny magnetic particles"). Vielleicht soll auch noch lat. "magna", "magnus" = "groß" mitklingen. Und das engl. "doodle" bedeutet u.a. "Gekritzel". Also "Schreiben mit Hilfe einer magnetischen Tafel".


How Magna Doodle Works
by Craig Freudenrich, Ph.D.

Inside this Article In 1974, four engineers from Pilot Pen Corporation invented a "dustless chalkboar­d." Their invention has become one of the most popular drawing toys, with more than 40 million sold since its introduction. Countless children have enjoyed playing and learning with it.
The magnetophoretic display panel is what makes the Magna Doodle unique.

sophomore (W3)



Ein "sophomore" ist ein Highschool-Schüler bzw. Student im zweiten Studienjahr.
(griech. "sophós" = "geschickt", "klug" und lat "morus" = "albern", närrisch".)

The word "sophomore" literally means "wise fool" (many thanks to my high school etymology teacher).
It means simply that you think that you know more than you actually do. It's a frame of mind and it's a dangerous one but it can be actively dealt with if you are cognizant of its existence. Unfortunately, it plagues many young players as they embark upon their second go-around in The Show - the attitude that 'I did it once and it really wasn't that hard.
