The average contemporary English speaker knows 50,000 words. Yet stripped down to its origins, in reality this vocabulary is much smaller, derived from Latin, French, and Germanic origins. Each year, it is estimated that 800 neologisms are added to the English language: acronyms, blended words, and those taken from foreign languages. The Word Origins app, intuitively arranged in an A to Z format with detailed cross references, is a valuable historical guide to the English language. FEATURES: intuitively search from A to Z, save your favorite words, and share intriguing findings with your friends on Facebook!
