  • The etymology of the name Romsey has been much disputed. There can be no doubt about the meaning of the termination "ey"--island--which we meet with under different spellings in many place-names, such as Athelney, Ely, Lundy, Mersea and others, for Romsey stands upon an island, or rather group of islands, formed by the division of the river Test into a number of streams, which again flow together to the south of the town, and at last, after a course of about seven miles, empty themselves into Southampton Water.

  • Study of the Vietnamese language has seldom paid attention to the characteristics and origin of Vietnamese Personal Pronouns.

  • The hero in The Name of the Rose is a medieval English monk. He acts as sleuth, ‘‘Etymology’’ means the derivation of a word’s meaning. and is heard to note at one point in the story how, ‘The study of words is the whole of knowledge’. While we might wish he had gone a little further to mention chemicals, we would have to agree that many of our technical words can be traced back to Latin or Greek roots. The remainder of them originate from the principal scientists who pioneered a particular field of study, known as etymology....

  • It has been said that "Nothing Succeeds Like Success." What is Success? If we consult the dictionaries, they will give us the etymology of this much used word, and in general terms the meaning will be "the accomplishment of a purpose." But as the objects in nearly every life differ, so success cannot mean the same thing to all men. The artist's idea of success is very different from that of the business man, and the scientist differs from both, as does the statesman from all three. We read of successful gamblers, burglars or freebooters, but no true success was ever won or ever can be...

  • Not long ago, in the nineties, no one doubted that a “digital revolution” was in the making—in architecture as in all aspects of life, science, and art. Today (early 2010) the very expression “digital revolution” has fallen into disuse, if not into disrepute; it sounds passé and archaic, at best the reminder of an age gone by. Yet digital technologies, now ubiquitous, have already significantly changed the way architecture is designed and made. They are changing how architecture is taught in schools, practiced, managed, even regulated.

  • Our respect for Partridge has not blinded us to the features of his work that have drawn criticism over the years. His protocol for alphabetising was quirky. His dating was often problematic. His etymologies at times strayed from the plausible to the fanciful. His classification by register (slang, cant, jocular, vulgar, coarse, high, low, etc.) was intensely subjective and not particularly useful.
