Pronounced: kam-puh-NEE-lee (alternative kam-puh-NEEL)
Notes: I don’t know how well this word is known
The word isonomy means “the equality of political rights”
This word came into English in the late 1500s
Background / Comments
The word comes from the Greek word isonomia, which comes from iso- (equal; same) and nomia (law). I recognized both base parts (iso and nomos), but that wasn’t quite enough to properly define the word: it shows how a word can take on a meaning that is not quite the same as the sum of its roots.
