"Etymology has been briefly defined in this book as 'the origin, formation, and development (of a word) '. Some of the words going back to OE are as old as time, and are represented in many of the Indo-European languages. Other words commence their documented life not before the Middle English period. Some words are native words by descent through a long ancestry of Germanic stock, other words have come into English from a foreign language such as Greek or Latin, (Old) French or Low Dutch and, later, from many non-Indo-European languages of the East, South, and West.
