Online Etymology Dictionary

As a huge fan of etymology, I find myself drawn to the history of words and their use. This is an extremely (EXTREMELY!) incomplete dictionary at the moment, but I’ve been told that my ability to fluently speak multiple languages offers a unique perspective, so I’m going to keep doing it. Besides, this is fun.
