Fun Facts: Etymology

Did You Know?

The word “leaf” is related to the word “library.” An explicit example of this is the verb “to leaf,” which means to flip through pages of a book. Think also of a “leaflet” or flyer. The origin of the word library has to do with stripping bark from trees.

Also consider the word “folio” which means a “sheet of paper folded to make two leafs,” or a book or volume consisting of pages thereof. This is obviously related to the word “foliage.”

So there you have it! Nature and knowledge, working together since the beginning of civilization.
