Find out where the words 'bungalow' and 'assassin' came from, what 'nice' meant in the Middle Ages and much more.

Walter Skeat () was one of the greatest investigators of the roots of the English language, and his remarkable scholarship was instrumental in the revival of the great works of early English Literature. His astonishing detective work into the origins and development of the world's most widely used language provides an unsurpassed guide to its flexibility and richness.1/5(1).

What is etymology and why is it important. Join us on an excursion into the world of eight common words' delightfully convoluted backstories.

Even after prayers were removed altogether, the word "primer" was still applied to elementary reading books. I don't think we use "primer" anymore for first readers. It sounds very one-room-schoolhouse to me. But I was surprised to see the types of books Author: Katherine Barber.

primer (n.1) late 14c., "prayer-book," also "school book" (senses not distinguished in Middle Ages, as reading was taught from prayer books), from Medieval Latin primarius, from Latin primus "first" (see prime (adj.)). The word also might be all or in part from prime (n.) on the same notion as a "Book of Hours." Meaning "small introductory book on any topic" is from   primer (feminine primera, masculine plural primers, feminine plural primeres) first (mathematics) prime (having no divisor except itself and 1): Usage notes.

When primer is the ordinal number of a century or of a regnal name of a monarch or pope, it is written using Roman numerals following the noun. Thus Joan Primer is written Joan I. English adopted “primer” in its learning sense from primarium, medieval Latin for a prayer book.

In classical Latin, primarius was an adjective meaning primary. Such devotional books were often used to teach children to read, which soon led to the use of “primer” for a beginning (or first) school book, according to the Chambers Dictionary of Etymology.

The history of English grammars begins late in the sixteenth century with the Pamphlet for Grammar by William the early works, the structure and rules of English grammar were based on those of Latin.

A more modern approach, incorporating phonology, was introduced in the nineteenth century. In American usage, the word primer has two pronunciations, according to whether it refers to a beginning reading book [PRIM-ur] or to an undercoat of paint [PRY-mur].

In British usage, it’s pronounced the same way for both [PRY-mur]. This post is about the word primer [PRIM-ur] as it applies to a source of elementary instruction. The first primers were devotionals or instructional manuals.

In American English, we use the "primmer" pronunciation for an introductory book. “Primer” with a long I, rhyming with "climber," came from an. primer First; original; primary.; n primer A first book; a small elementary book of instruction.; n primer Specifically (ecclesiastical), in England, both before and after the Reformation, a book of private devotions, especially one authorized by the church and partially or wholly in the vernacular, containing devotions for the hours, the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments.
