History, in a word

A parent cannot decipher words for a child. Only the child can decipher written language. You can help! You can help LOTS of ways. One way would be to gain an interest in the words you use yourself, and stop once in a while to examine one, its history, why it means what it means.


Here are some fun practice words you can probably figure out without looking them up, maybe.
Cambridge
breakfast
trailer
another
never
