Description
"If you want to know more about the histories of words than you can find in a dictionary entry or a collection of (often erroneous) etymologies, this is the only book that can help you. A thorough investigation of the history of the science of etymology, Word Origins is the first book to make this arcane endeavor more accessible to the nonspecialist reader."--BOOK JACKET.
