Excerpt from The Study of Words

And if this may be true in regard of a foreign tongue, how much truer ought it to be in regard of our own, of our mother tongue, ' as we affectionately call it. A great writer not very long departed from us has borne witness at once to the pleasantness and profit of this study. In a language, ' he says, 'like ours, where so many words are derived from other languages, there are few modes of instruction more useful or more amusing than that of accus toming young people to seek for the etymology or primary meaning Of the words they use. There are cases in which more knowledge of more value may be conveyed by the his tory of a word than by the history of a campaign.' SO writes Coleridge; and impressing the same truth, Emerson has somewhere characterized language as fossil poetry.'
