Word Origin of the day

Each day The Muse Of Language Arts features a word, phrase, or expression whose origin is noteworthy or whose meaning and true significance may be more complex than at first meets the eye. Here you'll see what words really mean (or meant) and how they got that way. You may be in for a few surprises.

About this feature

The Muse Of Language Arts dissects words or combinations of words and investigates their essential meaning.

Words have histories and tell stories. In this feature, The Muse is not trying to replicate the dictionary or etymological tract. The Muse is not simply after the dictionary definition of a word or words, but rather seeks to lift the rocks that words hide thereunder. The Muse asks how and why a word is used the way it is and assesses how the word relates to other words.
