While you are not permitted to cite a dictionary as one of your resources, the Oxford English Dictionary (or "OED") can give you some ideas of where to begin your research. The OED covers the etymology of words: the historical origin and development of a word. The OED is available electronically in our database list or in print in the Reference Collection: REF PE 1625 O87 1989.
