15 Words That Came from Literature

This weekend I came across Love Reading UK’s blog and found this awesome infographic that shows you where some of our daily words originated from. I had no idea that Shakespeare brought the word “Eyesore” into our language. Are you surprised by any words on this list?

    I really found this blog interesting and informative. I had no idea some of the words were introduced so early in literature. Thanks for the post.
