Etymology and Cognitive Synonyms (synsets)
Why you begin with the history of the word and cognitive synonyms?
The birth place of words are in peoples minds. They become the blocks we use to build what we see, hear, taste, touch and smell (our senses). When you read you are condensing your senses into a chain of links from a set of symbols. These visible symbols are the anchors you chunk into your vocabulary to name your thoughts and beliefs.
The purpose of reading a list of the history of a word is to build your relationship as the word grew-up in time. The family origins of a word connects the anchor to the chain of how the words story sprouted in someones mind.
The cognitive synonyms (synset for short) are the present sprouted offspring of the word. They provide you with fresh mental anchors to the chain of the words story.
Read the groups of words to see their birth.
Connect with the anchors to the story of the words to see how they’ve grown.
