World Wide Words
Pedants, ahoy! This is the Web site for you.
World Wide Words contains a wealth of information on usage and abusage of the language, old words, new words, real words, false words. Ever wondered where the phrase "Shiver my timbers" comes from? Or "in cold blood?" Or the fab sixties exclamation "Groovy"?
You'll find all the answers here, and probably much much more than you bargained for. It's not just good for reference - this site is also fun and informative, and may even help you get on in the cut-throat world of pub quizzes.
