Item Description...
Fascinating articles, written in a witty, conversational style, describe how English words have come to us from other languages and evolved over time. Also described are words, like "workaholic," which have been coined only recently. This is an invaluable volume for students and amateur clymologists alike.

Etymology sort of ho hum  Jan 4, 2007
I love learning the origins of words. This was a very fun read, but somewhat limited, as would be expected for a smaller volume. Great choice for a starter book on word origins.
Features the histories of more than 1,500 English words  Oct 5, 2004
Created and published in cooperation with the Editors of Merriam-Webster, this bargain edition of Webster's New Explorer Dictonary Of Word Origins features the histories of more than 1,500 English words. Presenting its alphabetically arranged entries in a down-to-earth, conversational style, cross-referenced for easy lookup and supplemented with a brief history of the English language, Webster's New Explorer Dictonary Of Word Origins is as amusing a resource as it is useful, for students and bibliophiles alike. Especially recommended for anyone striving to enhance their English vocabulary, since the background stories behind the words make for especially interesting mnemonics and other means to keep their definitions in mind.
