Should anyone wish to know the origin of a word, please add to this post and begin the thread: I have some very reliable sources of etymology at my disposal.

Out of interest, which ones are you using? I am dependent on web sources as I can't carry all my books around with me. ;-)

And although I would love to have unlimited access to the OED on-line [I could really add some credence!], the subscription fee is a little too expensive. SB

thx for sharing, I think it's a very useful website, btw, can you introduce me a good website of slangs, both American slang and English slang will do.

Sadly, the OUP is well aware of its value. ;-)
