WORD (hannah)

Etymology: the study of the origin of words and the ways in which their meanings change throughout history.

This class is all about WORDs. It’s an etymology class! We will study the origins of lots of words and their historical, cultural, social, and etymological changes over time. We will play around with words by doing crosswords and other word puzzles. We will look up the meanings of words we really like! Multiple meanings! How words are employed and shifted in written work like POETRY. Learn new words! Learn some Latin and Greek because that’s where hella English words come from! Words from OTHER languages that ended up in our lexicon somehow!! What the heck does lexicon mean??? Take this class and find out! Gen Z uses words in a weird way – you probs have something to teach me. Like how “W” just means win now. Meaning is use.
