Online Etymology Dictionary

Tons of dictionaries out there, each telling you what a word means, but if you really want to understand why a word is the way it is, this is where you go.

The Online Etymology Dictionary tells you stuff like a word’s origin, its historical usage, and for many, even its evolving definition.

The write-ups are refreshingly brief and snappy, so it won’t be anything like being stuck next to a socially awkward know-it-all at a dinner party, the one who overcomes their discomfort being around other people by explaining everything in minute and extensive detail to answer questions that were never asked in the first place.

Definitely a must-bookmark resource!
