The English language is interesting in that many of its words come from other languages. Our language contains words from German, French, Spanish..you get the picture.
In the next series of blogs we will look at words that come from mythology.
Iris: A female messenger of the gods. She traveled on the rainbow to deliver messages to mortals from the gods.
Today it is known as the colored part of our eyes.
Atlas: Was the leader of the Titans who fought a war against the gods on Mt. Olympus. Needless to say the Titans lost the war and as punishment for leading the rebellion, Zeus sentenced Atlas to hold up the sky to keep it separate from the Earth.
Today an atlas is a book of maps.
That’s it for Now
Keep the Peace
