Analyze Text

The following is something like an "etymological text analyzer": You can enter up to 200 words of text into the box below, and the system will look up the etymology of each word and present it on a result page.

Furthermore the words will be color-coded: Words that come from a Germanic language like English itself, its ancestors like Middle English and Old English, or Old Norse, will be colored like this, whereas words from a Romance language like Anglo-Norman, Old French or from Latin will be colored like this.

Text to analyze:

Please note: Analyzing can take up to 1 second per word, so please be patient. For some words the source (Wiktionary) does not contain etymological info. Sometimes the extraction of the info by etymology.ch's backend fails. Sometimes the backend is not able to reduce words to their correct base forms and the lookup fails.
