Fun for wordnerds

Thanks to Philadelphia Inquirer book editor Frank Wilson for a link to Etymologic! If you fancy yourself an etymology buff, you’ll enjoy playing along. I beat Frank’s seven out of ten; I aced the test.

Perfect Score

Here’s the list of words and phrases the site gave me:
  • sea butterfly
  • coco
  • soteriology
  • boondocks
  • bootleg
  • gaffer
  • pencil
  • chocolate
  • curfew
  • get a bead on
I admit I had to guess at a couple of them.
