Quality Paperback. Used; Very Good. If you are interested in the history of words, but prefer readable prose to the dense abbreviations and symbols used in other dictionaries, The Concise Dictionary of Word Origins is for you. Here are browsable, authoritative etymologies of thousands of English words, including recently-coined words such as "fax" and slang such as "bimbo." Widely believed, but false, etymologies--such as that "aborigine" derives from the Latin ab origine (from the beginning)--are fascinating supplements to the true etymologies." . 0. TRADE PAPERBACK.
