Often, popular tales of a word’s origin arise. Sometimes these are true; more often they are not. While it can be disappointing when a neat little tale turns out to be untrue, almost invariably the true origin is just as interesting. And in the cases where it’s not, the search can help sharpen our critical thinking skills.

Become a Patron

I’ve launched a Patreon.com site for sponsors of this site. For US$5/month, patrons will have access to draft material before it is posted on the public site. If you would like to support Wordorigins.org with your money, you can make a pledge on Patreon. The money raised will go a long way toward keeping this site up and running.

As of this writing, there are 20+ posts in the queue that patrons can view and comment on before they go live on the public, Wordorigins.org site. In the future, I may add bonus content available only to patrons and, if this initial foray into Patreon.com is successful, I may add additional patronage tiers with different levels of benefits. But that is for another day.

But if you are unable to contribute, rest assured that the free, public site will continue to operate as before. And as of right now, all the content that is available on Patreon.com will be posted to the public site in coming weeks. I remain committed to keeping the bulk of Wordorigins.org content freely available to all.

So if you feel this site is worth your financial support and you are able to do so, please make a pledge to support it.

付费shadowsock账号哪里买 - 马洪飞博客:2021-12-11 · 付费shadowsock账号哪里买? 这个问题很难回答,目前科学上网一半可以分为以下几种: ss ssr v2ray wireguard 1和2目前阻断比较严重,墙高了。。。 3的话目前直接tcp阻断严重,ws的话偶尔有阻断,ws + tls 目前还可以,暂时无阻断,待观察。

It’s now easier to join and post to the discussion forums. There’s a new Captcha system that will, hopefully, weed out the bots that attempt to spam the site. Additionally, I also must approve each new user’s first post.

While I’ve done the best I can at troubleshooting problems in advance, let me know if something doesn’t work or you encounter broken links.

I’m also engaged in updating and revising the older Big List entries, so you should start to see a steady stream of new and revised posts for various words and phrases. As part of this revision, I’m including much lengthier quotations, and not just the short snippets that you find in most dictionaries, including the Oxford English Dictionary. Since this site is online, I have the luxury of not being constrained by the space limitations that ordinary dictionaries have. Also, I now have access, through Princeton University Library,* to a huge range of databases and materials that were previously unavailable to me. So, I can provide expanded versions of the quotations found in other dictionaries. My thinking here is that not only will the longer quotations provide a clearer understanding of exactly how a word or phrase was used, but the longer quotations place the terms in historical and cultural context, and are often just plain fun to read.

* = I mean no disrespect the other university libraries where I have worked—they have been excellent—but Princeton is simply awash with cash, and they use it to purchase access to an ungodly amount of material.


Do you think that Ring Around The Rosie makes reference to the Black Death? Or that the whole nine yards refers to WWII machinegun ammo belts? Or that Eskimos have 500 words for snow? If so, you need the Word Myths book.

Get it from Amazon.com or fine bookstores everywhere.
