Excerpts from Uncleftish Beholding
EtymologyIt just struck me that one of the things I've been doing in my attempt to explain why Latin is so interesting to me has a name: etymology. Here's the dictionary definition.
If, like me, you find that first one a bit hard to parse, just note that there are three parts (clauses?), starting with “determining”, “tracing”, and “identifying”.
It's too bad there's not a nicer corresponding verb than “etymologize” … you have to admit that's a little clunky.
