Since this dictionary went up, it has benefited from the suggestions of dozens of people I
have never met, from around the world. Tremendous thanks and appreciation to all of you.
Scheduled site maintenance, Sunday, Oct 8, 10pm EST / 7pm PST will be offline for about 10 minutes at 02:00:00 UTC time, Monday, October 9 (that’s Sunday, Oct 8, 10 . EST / 7 . PST). The down-time will allow a design team to implement a new and improved that will have the quality of the old site but offer new features that users have requested. Most importantly, the site will become mobile-friendly and meet the requirements of new technologies, which will help it survive and prosper. It will be the biggest change to etymonline since the website came online; the goal is to make it better without sacrificing what already makes it good.
As a layman, one question is always at the tip of my tongue. I am not too bothered at all having ministers declaring their assets. But I am asking, all ministers/politicians to declare the schools/colleges/universities of which their children are attending!! The answer will clearly show that our education system had totally failed even the ministers/politicians alike. And yet anyone doing anything so far? Proudly claiming our education system is among the world’s best should be countered with the findings to my mentioned question above. Then you will how BEST it is our system!!
