Comment of the Week

“As a retired Latin teacher, I am completely in love with etymology! My favorite and very applicable Latin word used in English is addict. We live in a world full of addictive substances. Ad means to or toward (think advance). Dict, like diction or dictation, means speak. When you’re addicted, that substance keeps speaking to you!”
