Etymology

Monday 11 September

Word path for "canon." The photocopied page I gave you has, I believe, three entries; work out of the long one. List five meanings the word has in current English, and a couple each for other languages if meanings vary. The main thing is to list all the languages the word passed through. What common idea connects all meanings of this word? I will collect the homework: full credit if you give it a credible shot.
