You can also look these word up in a dictionary. A good dictionary
will often have information on the background of certain words. I
would recommend Webster or Oxford. Get one that is on a college level
- the definitions are more detailed. Whenever I come across an
unfamiliar word, I make it a practice to look it up in a dictionary.
You'll find that it can be your best friend!
