Homework Help: English

Posted by Dennis on Sunday, July 29, 2007 at 5:18pm.

How do you find the etymology for example of the word panic?

In any dictionary (in print or online) there should be a section, often in brackets, that gives you the history of the word.

Go here: http://www.answers.com/panic

Scroll down to just below the definitions, and you'll find the etymology in brackets.

In addition, here's this: http://www.etymonline.com/
