  • Now, isonomy is an English word meaning 'equality of laws, or of people before the law', as is attunement, but not so "apmonia"; where did Beckett get it? APMONIA. 2005

  • The upper-case form of the Greek word αρμονία 'harmony' happens to look exactly like Latin-alphabet "apmonia"; Beckett had presumably noticed this at some point and made a note of it for future use. APMONIA. 2005
