STANFORD LINGUIST 62n   -     Autumn 2008
Homework 6
Due: Before class starts on Tuesday Feb 12th
  1. With your partner, write a nice blog entry on the history of the word you've picked. Remember to check the OED online. But don't just use online references (in fact, I suspect most online etymologies are just made up). Instead, use references such as the Cambridge World History of Food, the Oxford Companion to Food, The Larousse Gastronomique, individual cuisine histories like Kate Colquhoun's "Taste: The Store of Britain Through Its Cooking", or spice histories like Andrew Dalby's "Dangerous Tastes: The store of spices".
