Philip Durkin, chief etymologist of the "Oxford English Dictionary", shows how different types of evidence can shed light on the myriad ways in which words change in form and meaning. He considers how such changes can be part of wider linguistic processes, or be influenced by a complex mixture of social and cultural factors.

This book has grown out of the research on the etymology of Homer and his Scholiasts, which Dr. H. Peraki-Kyriakidou and I have conducted.

etymologizing in a number of articles whose corollaries I briefly summarize in this book.
