In this etymology game you'll be presented with 10 randomly selected etymology (word origin)
or word definition
puzzles to solve; in each case the word or phrase is highlighted in bold,
and a number of possible answers will be presented.
You need to choose the correct answer to score a point for that question.
Beware! The false answers will often also seem quite plausible, and some
of the true answers are hard to believe, but we have documentation!
Oh, and in case you're wondering, the word etymology comes from the Greek word 'etymos', which
means real, or true, and the -ology ending indicates that it's the study of, or science of. Put them
together and you get the study or science of the real or true. Impressive, eh?
