Word Etymology Resources

Many of our users have requested information on where words come from and how they originated. This Etymology page will help point you to sites that can provide more information on word histories. There are very few quality Etymology sites on the web and even fewer dealing with languages other than English. We will continue to add new sites to this list as we find them. If you are a business and would like to be a sponsor of this site or you find any bad links or new useful links then please contact us from the appropriate address on our How To Contact Us webpage.
