The Secret Life of Words English Words and Their Origins pdf 

The Secret Life of Words English Words and Their Origins pdf : Pages 277

By Anne Curzan, Ph.D.

This guidebook uses the following typographical conventions:
• Italics are used for words cited as words (rather than used functionally; e.g., The word ginormous is a combination of gigantic and enormous) and foreign-language words.
• Single quotation marks are used for meanings of words (e.g., Wife meant ‘woman’ in Old English).
• Double quotation marks are used for pronunciations of words (e.g.,“often” versus “offen”) and words used in a special sense (e.g., The “secret lives” of words are fascinating).
• Slashes are used to indicate sounds (e.g., /b/).
• An asterisk is used to designate proto-language forms (e.g., The Indo-European root *mn-ti, ‘to think,’ gives us the Latin borrowing mental). ( Book / pages : 8 )
