    Am surprised that there is no Latin or Greek etymology for 'uxor' -- I'm generally not concerned since most are obvious, or simply general knowledge -- but not this one, at least not for me. Frankly, I feel it would be a good idea to give a smidgen of etymology for each and every word you post. Thanks
