Overview

Point Blank Cheque Mate by Mark Forsyth

What is the actual connection between disgruntled and gruntled? What links church organs to organized crime, California to the Caliphate, or brackets to codpieces?

The Etymologicon springs from Mark Forsyth's Inky Fool blog on the strange connections between words.

It's an occasionally ribald, frequently witty and unerringly erudite guide tour of the secret labyrinth that lurks beneath the English language, taking in monks and monkeys, film buffs and buffaloes, and explaining precisely what the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening.
