Brill quiz - and, at last I had to confront the fact that I didn't know the meaning of diluvian. I kept thinking ante diluvian - and that should have helped, but it didn't. Curses, Red Baron!!

I tried fine for penal. I know it comes from latin poena and meant money you had to pay after doing something wrong. I couldnt think of a synonym for fine. Originally it isnt about discipline or punishment as it is now, but well to atone/do penance by paying money, the word penance/penitence is related aswell.

Eventhough the everyday use has shifted more to connection with prison. Originally the paying part is an integral part of the word. With something materialistic, not by doing time or getting hit (as punishment can imply. Though we still use the figurative "you will (have to) pay for that !!" it usually does not mean they want money, but you ll more likely get beat up..

Interestingly pain and fine have the same origins/root. (and both are/have been the consequences of doing something wrong, retribution)
