ETYMOLOGY 'WORD-HISTORY' (Caveat)
Greek etymologia, properly "study of the true sense (of a word)," from etymon "true sense" (neuter of etymos "true, real, actual," related to eteos "true") + -logia "study of, a speaking of" (see -logy). Understanding the roots of our words helps us understand human history.  There is however some colonial prejudice found in linguistics.  Linguists in studying national languages are often referring to the word-roots of those words institutionally imposed by dominant colonizing races such as: Roman Latin or Greek colonizers or Indo-Europeans giving weight to the language component of the invader and less to 'indigenous' words.  Hopefully human-kind will arise to learn the truth held within indigenous language components so we can better understand the worlds of those who have traditionally lived in peace.
