Quiz over medeklinkers. Deadline: 31 Maart 2020.

Sidste uges quiz

 

Sidste uges quiz handlede om navnet for det yderste lag af solens atmosfære eller ved månen, som kan observeres næsten kun når der er en solformørkelse. Hvad hedder det, og hvad er etymologien af ordet, spurgte vi.

Vi modtog en del korrekte svar, og vinderen blev Bastian Solås, med svaret:

Det yderste lag af solens atmosfære hedder på dansk korona og stammer fra det latinske corona, der betyder krans eller krone.

Marcus tilføjede at ordet faktisk kommer fra græsk κορώνη (korōnè) som betyder ”kranse, blomsterkrans”.

Bastian, vinderen, til lykke! Vi kontakter dig omkring din præmie!

 

Last week’s quiz

Last week’s quiz was about the name for the natural phenomenon that can rarely be seen in the sky around the sun, and more often around the moon.  We asked: What is it called and what is the etymology of the word?

We received a number of correct answers, and the winner is Bastian Solås, who answered:

The outermost layer of the sun’s atmosphere is called korona in Danish and [corona in English] and is derived from the Latin corona, meaning wreath or crown.

Marcus added that the Latin word derives from the ancient Greek word κορώνη (korōnè) meaning ‘garland, wreath’.

Bastian, you will be contacted about your prize, but it may take some time before it actually reaches you.
