I just wanted to say that I’m enjoying the Etymology Calendar so very much! I’m super impressed you all managed to find THIS many interesting etymologies, I almost want to put all of them in a scrapbook because they just make me so happy every day!
The etymologies are so much fun that I don’t mind reading them twice, so I went and read some ahead before 2019!
I’m not an expert in this field at all, but the entries are very well written! Sometimes the etymologies are so obvious that I think to myself, surely I could’ve realised that before…
I find it hard not to tear and read every page of the calendar until December before January is over. Every word has an interesting story. It really makes you look at language in a different way. And I’m saying that as a linguist.
The people visiting our bathroom love the calendar, we get lots of compliments on it 😊
I put the calendar up in the women’s toilet of our dorm and now people from the other corridor also come to our bathroom because they want to read the calendar
My colleagues loved it. Next year they’ll be begging for it.
