Mari-Lou A

It's been suggested that I add the following description on my profile. The linked post also probably says more about "me" than I could or would want to say.

Born in the UK, living in N. Italy for too many years, but a frequent visitor to the UK and Ireland.

I like asking questions more than answering, so in no particular order, here are few of my favourite questions

  1. Where on Earth is "penguin" from?
  2. Why were slum kids called “urchins”?
  3. What happened to the “ch” in moschito?
  4. Did the English call a fruit “openærs” for 700 years?
  5. Is there an etymological explanation for the silent ‘g’ in “paradigm”?
  6. Button up that frog, will you?
