Bridgetymology – Confidence

THESE ARE OUR BI-WEEKLY, BITE-SIZE SOLO EPISODES, WHERE ASHA AND KESHIIA BRING YOU ALONG WITH THEM ON THEIR JOURNEY TO BECOME BETTER COMMUNICATORS.

THROUGHOUT THESE SHORT YET INFORMATIVE SOLO CASTS, YOU’LL HEAR THEM BREAK DOWN DIFFERENT WORDS TO THEIR ORIGINAL MEANINGS, AS WELL AS INCLUDE COMPELLING STORIES OR STUDIES ALONG THE WAY.

BUT WHAT IS AN ETYMOLOGY, ANYWAY?

ACCORDING TO THE MERRIAM-WEBSTER DICTIONARY, AN ETYMOLOGY IS THE HISTORY OF A LINGUISTIC FORM (SUCH AS A WORD) SHOWN BY TRACING ITS DEVELOPMENT SINCE ITS EARLIEST RECORDED OCCURRENCE IN THE LANGUAGE WHERE IT IS FOUND, BY TRACING ITS TRANSMISSION FROM ONE LANGUAGE TO ANOTHER, BY ANALYZING IT INTO ITS COMPONENT PARTS, BY IDENTIFYING ITS COGNATES IN OTHER LANGUAGES, OR BY TRACING IT AND ITS COGNATES TO A COMMON ANCESTRAL FORM IN AN ANCESTRAL LANGUAGE.

IN TODAY’S EPISODE, YOU’LL HEAR ASHA BREAK DOWN THE WORD CONFIDENCE.
SHE TALKS ABOUT THE DIFFERENT DEFINITIONS AND CONTEXTS IN WHICH WE NORMALLY USE THIS WORD, BREAKS DOWN THE WORD TO ITS LATIN ROOTS, THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE WORDS COURAGE AND SELF-ESTEEM, AND MUCH MORE!

THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN TODAY! IF YOU HAVEN’T LISTENED TO EPISODE 2, WHERE ASHA AND KESHIIA INTRODUCE THEMSELVES AND TALK ABOUT WHAT BRIDGET IS ALL ABOUT, THEN GO BACK AND CHECK IT OUT!
