Online Etymology Dictionary
Douglas Harper's Online Etymology Dictionary is a super dictionary of word origins available online. Want to know what a Fata Morgana is? Check it out in the dictionary.

"These are not definitions; they're explanations of what our words meant 600 or 2,000 years ago. Think of it like looking at pictures of your friends' parents when they were your age. People will continue to use words as they will, finding new or wider meanings for old words and coining new ones to fit new situations. In fact, this list is a testimony to that process."

The Dictionary is a fun browse and a useful tool.
