Quotes about English language origin
posted by Rebekah on .
So I wanted to start my etymology paper about fascinating word origins with a quote as my attention grabber. I am looking for a quote that talks about the english language and the origin of most of its words. Some interesting quote. I don't even know if there is a type of quote like that but I looked on BrainyQuotes and all of the quotes arent really about word origins. Sorry if this is confusing!
Go into some of these sites and see if anything is useful.
How about this one?
