Research – To really, really wonder about

Research – to find out about something.

The first record we have of the use of the word ‘research’ is from 1577, the word comes from the French word ‘recherche’ which meant ‘to seek’. It combined the Latin ‘re-‘ which was used for emphasising, with the French ‘cherche’ meaning ‘to search’. ‘Cherche’ comes from the Latin word ‘circare’ meaning ‘to wonder about’.
