Word roots and routes: Easter

Word roots and routes: Easter | Macmillan

 © CorbisThe words Easter and east are related not only to each other, but also to orient, origin and aurora. This might surprise you, but the alternation between s and r in related words is quite common – think of was vs. were,
for example. In this post I’ll say something about these words, plus
the names of the other points of the compass, and finally something
about an Easter custom and the bizarre effect it has on some people’s
spelling........
