I didn’t plan it this way, but since the discussion of the etymology of ‘four’ has unfolded into a small saga in several acts, I have to organise it for convenience. Here is a map of the route:
- [Word of the Month: Proto-Indo-European ‘Four’]
- [Even and Odd]
- [The Name of the Game: Jakobson Reads Vasmer]
- [Twos and Troops: Sifting the Evidence]
- [Forgotten Derivatives and their Sexual Implications]
- [Only Connect: The Strange Triangle]
- [Two Is Company, Four Is a Party] NEW!
