Etymology and the spread of language

December 12, 2006 at 1:17 pm Leave a comment

Some years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to a newsletter on the etymology of english words. I get an email once a week with a fantastic investigation into the growth of the english language and the way in which words become archaic and forgotten. Its a great read and I often discover interesting things about books and current affairs, simply keeping abreast of an evolving language. Head on over to Michael Quinon’s website and sign-up for the newsletter, or simply have a browse around the site to pick up some interesting tidbits that you can throw into conversation over your christmas dinner!
