This app provides a searchable, browsable version of "Dictionary of Word Origins" by John Ayto.
The dictionary uncovers the often surprising connections between words. In more than 8,000 entries, the dictionary reveals the origins of and links between words like beef and cow, secret and crime, flour and pollen, imbecile and bacteria, plankton and complain. Presented in a clear and informative style, the dictionary shows how English today has developed from its Indo-European origins and how diverse influences on the language have intermingled.
