English: what is a maven?

Self-tutoring about English: the tutor mentions maven, a word he’s long wondered about.

Here and there, I’ve seen the word maven over the years, but never knew what it meant. Finally I got the notion to look it up:

maven: one with expert knowledge on the subject in question.
