Well, "knowlegde" is 'scio', "theory" must be 'teorio' (but I'm not sure). As for "scholarship", I don't know... 'lernajxo' comes to mind ("learnt thing"), but it sounds a little bit too vague and not abstract enough. Yet it could be a nice word as it is not Euro-centric at all (unless you consider the concept of learning Euro-centric :) ). Christophe Grandsire |Sela Jemufan Atlinan C.G.
