Musings

seeker reblogged this on The Seeker and commented:

Like gratitude, grace, and congratulate, gratuitous is a descendant of the Latin wordgratus, which means “pleasing” or “grateful.” When gratuitous was first used in the middle of the 17th century, it meant “free” or “given without return benefit or compensation.” The extended meaning “done without good reason” or “unwarranted” came about just a few decades later, perhaps from the belief held by some people who one should not give something without getting something in return.

In addition to my Sunday Snippets, Good Friar has a word for today. Gratefully yours, Perpetua.
