Quick Overview

Rupa A2Z Book of Word Origins

Where do words came from? How ad when were they invented? Why are there so many different languages? Why do many languages share the same or similar words for the same things? The answers to all these questions lie in the study of etymology. This concerns the roots of words and how the sounds and spellings, as well as the meanings, have evolved over time. How did ‘lollypops’ get their name? (In the northern part of England, ‘lolly’ means ‘tongue’.)
Useful for reference and fun for browsing, A2Z Book of Word Origins is also an interesting way to expand vocabulary and enjoy reading it. This book gives a history of the words, expressions and clichés we use.
