How to use "Etymon" in context?
Etymology is the study of the origin and history of words. The word "etymology" comes from Ancient Greek and literally means "the study of origins." Etymologists work to identify the root words of different languages, as well as the origins of new words.
One of the primary tools etymologists use is the comparative method. This involves comparing the roots of two or more words to try and determine their common origins. Other methods used include the analytic method, which looks at the actual structure of words, and the lexical method, which focuses on the meaning of words.
