Once Upon a Lexicon was born from a long-standing love of words (and fairy tales) and the desire to share them with others. I took an Etymology class in high school on a whim, and followed that with brief periods of studying both Latin and Greek. I found that I was delighted by learning new words, or finding ones with a rich background, and I was hooked. English contains so many little oddities and unusual phrases that to think they could all be contained in a blog would be irrational, but this is a curated little corner of the blogosphere sharing my favorites with you. I hope you enjoy!
