Favorite Sites
We hope you'll find some of these sites -- among our favorites for writers, editors and communicators -- useful. If you can recommend a favorite site of your own, please let us know what you like about it.

BROWSING FOR ETYMOLOGY ENTHUSIASTS -- You can read the origins of more than 300 words or phrases and essays about etymology, ask about odd words or phrases or contribute your own knowledge at http://www.wordorigins.org. All the words on the list have an interesting history. For example, the entry on cut to the chase says, "This phrase meaning get to the point comes from the early days of Hollywood. Originally, it literally referred to a cut from a dramatic scene to an action one (the chase). The literal sense dates to J. P. McEvoy's 1927 novel Hollywood Girl, where it is given as a script direction." But you knew that. Do you know from whence came the whole shebang? The site says, "A shebang, or chebang, is a hut or dwelling. It's of unknown origin and dates to the early 1860s. Mark Twain, in an 1869 letter to his publisher, is the first to use the phrase the whole chebang in its modern sense of the entirety. The transition from building (and everything in it) to the whole thing is a pretty natural one." Other words to look up include bated breath, charley horse, face the music, muckety-muck, polka dot and raincheck.
