Etymology Bundle

This week, I would like you to learn more about the ETYMOLOGY of certain words. Etymology is the study of how words originated, so this particular bundle of words looks at the ORIGINS of those words. Understanding the origin of a word can really help you to remember how to spell that word. 

Work through this bundle, and then test yourself at the end.



Mary Shelley was an English novelist (1797-1851) who wrote the classic novel 'Frankenstein'. You may study this text when you are at secondary school.
