Do you know the old meaning of "wife" is simply "a woman"?

Combining both accessibility and authority, The Dictionary of Word Origins describes the origins and development of over 3,000 common words and phrases in the English language.

Organized A-Z, the entries include first known use along with examples that illustrate the many faces of the particular word or phrase, from ‘handsome’ to ‘bachelor’ and ‘cute’ to ‘baby’, from ‘pagan’ to ‘palaver’ and ‘toff’ to ‘torpedo’.

This app is useful for language students and enthusiasts, but also an intriguing read for any person interested in the development of the English language.
