From Gk. automatos "self-acting," from → auto- + matos "willing," from PIE *men- "to think;" compare with Av./O.Pers. man- "to think."

Xodkâr from xod-, → auto-, + kâr "acting, actor," from kardan "to do, act."

auto-; → morphism.


Fr.: autonome   

1) Self-governing; independent; subject to its own laws only; having autonomy.

autumn; → -al; → equinox.

Fr.: moyenne

averted vision
  نگاه ِ کژ   
negâh-e kaž (#)

Fr.: regard oblique   

The technique of looking slightly to the side of a faint object being studied while continuing to concentrate on the object.
