Photography: Meta-Emma by doublecappuccino

Today’s word of the day is “Meta”

Taken from Wikipedia, Meta is defined as …

Meta (from Greek: μετά = “after”, “beyond”, “with”), is a prefix used in English in order to indicate a concept which is an abstraction from another concept, used to complete or add to the latter. The Greek meta is equivalent to the Latin post.

A few interesting examples…

For example, metadata are data about data (who has produced them, when, what format the data are in and so on). Similarly, metamemory in psychology means an individual’s knowledge about whether or not they would remember something if they concentrated on recalling it.

This is a word that has captured my imagination since I learned of it. (And also that’s a great photo above :) )
