A fantastic etymological tool

by nowayjose on Dec 30, 2010

Origins examines the history and development of words we use in modern English today. If you wish to learn how any particular word came into being, Professor Partridge's work is the book for you!


Etymology lovers, alert!

by Sandara on Sep 27, 2007

I la-la-la LOVE this book! I am writing a book on (ahem) excrement, and it was both amusing and very helpful to have this book to help me trace the etymological origins of all the words we use for #2. Additionally, the book is simple, to the point, and fairly comprehensive. I use it in conjunction with my encyclopedic dictionary, and I can't think of any thing else I need for etymology references.
