I dealt with cub in my etymological dictionary, but a quick look at the word may not hurt, the more so as cub, which surfaced in English texts only in the early sixteenth century, turned out to be an aggressive creature: it ousted whelp, and later the verb to cub came into existence. Whatever the origin of cub (and the answer will be only partly illuminating), the constant suppression of old words by upstarts is a process worth noticing, regardl...

The Romans built the temple and baths early in their occupation, between 43-76 CE. The site quickly became a bustling city named Aquae ...

Players are participating in 7-on-7 passing league tournaments run by outside organizations. College summer camps are using the template executed at the NFL combin...
