We’re at the halfway point! It’s all downhill from here. And, coincidentally, today’s word is mountain.
Mountain showed up in the early thirteenth century from the Old French montaigne and before that the Vulgar Latin montanea. The Vulgar Latin is related to the classical Latin montanus, mountainous and mons, mountain.
And…that’s it! Not much about mountains, I guess. Enjoy your rest of the day.
