woodchuck, sockeye, skunk

Woodchuck, sockeye, skunk. What do these words have in common? They’re all originally from Amerindian words. Oxford Dictionaries has a new blog post up about words with Native American origins, some of which I found pretty surprising.

If you’re missing my blogging these days, that’s because you’re reading the wrong blog. Between now and mid-December, I’m doing a ton of writing over on the Washington Revels Blog.
