Welcome to my home, a site dedicated to the study
of word origins. Specifically, I am focusing on
those modern English words whose origins reach far
back into Ancient Greek and Roman mythology.
Take me to the Dictionary!
Elizabeth Wallis Kraemer is an Associate Professor in the Library at Oakland University in Rochester, MI. She received her Master's degree in Library and Information Science at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. As an undergrad, Beth attended Western Michigan University in
Kalamazoo, earning a Bachelor of Arts in English and Latin.
As a member of the Lee Honors College at Western, one of Beth's graduation requirements was the completion of a thesis that would represent the culmination of her four years of college study. Thus was born An Etymological Dictionary of Classical Mythology, the perfect union of Beth's English skills, her interest in Classical languages, and her passion for etymology.
