Where a word originated from and the history behind it is considered the etymology. When studying a word's etymology, we will focus on the earliest use of the word and broadcast of the word from one language to another. While a definition will tell you what a word means and is used commonly at the current time, etymology reveals a deeper essence of the word. These worksheets will help students understand the significance of a word's contribution to language.
