Here you go on Etmyology http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etymology/ . Take from the above Link... "Etymology is the study of the history of words — when they entered a language, from what source, and how their form and meaning have changed." Hope this helps. Thanks for Sharing the news words. - DNatureofDTrain
