ASSIZE

PRONUNCIATION: (uh-SYZ)

MEANING: noun: A session of a court or a verdict or an inquiry made at such a session.

ETYMOLOGY: From Old French asise, from asseoir (to seat), from Latin assidere (to sit), from ad- + sedere (to sit). Ultimately from the Indo-European root sed- (to sit), which also gave us sit, chair, saddle, soot, sediment, cathedral, preside, president, tetrahedron, surcease, assiduous, and sessile. Earliest documented use: 1297.

The central events were well planned.
Ceremonial skill
And punctilious drill
Are old royal strengths in this land.
