Etymology
The study of the origins and history of words


That pretty much sums it up. Everyday I will attempt to post a word or interesting phrase and tell you where it came from. If you like finding out why the Canary Islands are so called or where the phrase 'cold shoulder' comes from, you'll probably enjoy this blog. If you couldn't care less about any of this than you clearly had more friends than I did in high school.

I (me) like words. And even more than liking words I like to know where they come from and how they ended up in my mouth. It's called 'Etymology,' and I hope you like words as much as me do. If you have a word or phrase you've been pondering send it to me at Streeter@StreeterSeidell.com with 'Me Like Words' as the subject.
