ETYENTOMOLOGY—This series of Posts, which I will call, for lack of another description, Etyentomology, combines, somewhat, the fields of Etymology (word origins) and Entomology (the study of insects). This idea is partly generated by my friend Clay Price who frequently posts On Facebook wonderful information about the meanings and origins of words. You could just call this “words and phrases that ‘bug’ me”. Mainly, it is just a way to talk about one aspect of language that I love, words and their meanings and origins.
