Written in a witty, conversational style, Webster's New Explorer Dictionary of Word Origins describes how some common and not-so-common words entered the English language and how their meanings evolved. Some, like icicle and wiseacre, came to us from other languages and have been transformed to create new words. Others, like workaholic, were coined only recently. The histories of these words are among many fascinating stories of how language is shaped by people and events. An invaluable resource for students and amateur etymologists alike, this volume provides both useful information and entertaining reading. [via]
