Sometimes, you get a word *almost* right. Sometimes, you just get it wrong.
Have you guys seen this? I love reading about and discussing word origins (or making them up when information isn’t readily available) and I love studying the development of the English language. So many intriguing questions…
How did we come to have the largest vocabulary of any spoken language, along with thousands upon thousands of archaic words that have fallen into disuse and create an endless source of material for those page-a-day calendars? What makes English so unique and adaptable? How did English become the international language of business and commerce?
Do yourself a favor and watch this great little history over your morning coffee or at your lunch hour.
