"I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean." - Socrates.

Have you ever thought about words which end in -dom, like "wisdom"? You might realise, of course, that "wisdom" and "wise" are related. A person who is wise can be said to have, or show, wisdom. But how are words such as wisdom, kingdom, freedom and Christendom related? The suffix -dom indicates a state of being, or a specific area under an authority (a kingdom is under the authority of the king, for example). If a person with wisdom is wise, what is a person with boredom?

While you consider that question, have a go at this quiz.
