I’m a word guy, so when I come up to a word that doesn’t work for me I become puzzled. Especially when it’s a word that is given great power. Hope is one of those words. It has always fell a bit flat for me – without power. But during lockdown, I started to hear this word more and I decided to look it up. To get etymological on this word. And, well, at first I didn’t find much. Sometimes word origins just come up with the same word. But then, sometimes, I look deeper. Here’s what I found.
