0 t Talm Beach Post. Thursday, N'ov. 28, Time For Living ( ME AMffl " IEW CODol Kipling Entranced By Dictionary By ROGERS FRANKLIN Kptirr men! Co m A r AJFUW TTIHIAiW(BEVIRJ(G One of the more inresring things about Rudyafo Kiptjn? Kip! Is that he always lnctad dictionary among the ar of books he took him on bi P n r c mos," the Greek for "running." So a hippodrome is a place where horses run. "Dromos" combines with other words, as in "syndrome" or "running together." Now we've reached "syn," and that takes us iqto the section of the dictionary where such words as "synthetic" repose, a whole cluster of indispensable terms that we usnj the time. There(o need for me to stress the possibilities. They're endless. The second type of the ety-mological Heme Is more difficult. Thus, my wife holds the dictionary, flips it open at random, and asks me to state the origin of the first word she comes to. If I'm lucky, the exchange may go like this: Wife: tradict." Myself (confidently): "From the Latin contra (against) and dicere (to speak). Wife: "What about a derivative?" Myself (smugly): "I think the book you're holding will do." If I'm unlucky, she'll come up with words like "ichneumon". and "slur," not to mention "smew" (which I've Just learned is "a small diving bird"). I've just about run out of space for this particular subject. Still, no column on etymology would be complete without the old story about Noah Webster, the greatest of American lexicographers. His wife caught him kissing the maid. "Noah," she said, "I'm surprised." "No, madam," he replied, "I'm surprised. You are BALANCES OF ROLLS! REMNANTS! BUY NOW FOR HOLIDAY INSTALLATION! SAVE NOW - PAY NEXT YEAR! ONLY A PARTIAL LISTING! his travels. VJ say "interestine" bpran; Kjrjllng wasn't primarily concerned with looking up. words he didn't know. The Afljor of "The Jungle Book''clljid most pf the meaning Voiwd in his head. He consyOWJfcs memory when he was writing his own famous prose, or perusing somebody else's. He took the dictionary In order to read it. That's right. He'd sit in a train compartment or ship's cabin, and read through pages of the dictionary at a time. He was fascinated by etymology the science of word origins which kept him skipping backward and forward through the volume. But enough of Kipling. He's made his appearance merely to introduce our subject for today. My topic is reading the dictionary. This is a hobby that I want to call to your attention, a game that gives much pleasure and Is easy to play. All you need is a dictionary and a little imagination. There are several ways of playing the dictionary game for Instance, the simple process of beginning on page one, and reading as far along as your session takes you. But my wife and I are bugs cn etymology. We've discov-ered two basic types of the game that we often play alternately. The first type begins with a word that generates its own momentum. Here's a characteristic scene In our menage. Myself (dictionary In hand): 'Give me a word." Wife (reflectively) : "Hippopotamus." Myself (reading the definition): "Hippopotamus, from the Greek hippos (horse) and potamos (river). Unfamiliar with the African beast, the Greeks named it for the nearest thing In their experience." At this point we have two "word origins. I look up the "hippos" line and find "hippodrome," the last part of which turns out to be from "dro- Christmas delivery guaranteed 4- i CONTENT REC SLt Barwick- Here.
