crescent etymology sketch

1st sketch of a word, trying to keep it open by using color and shorter lines that describe boundaries without chunking stuff off so boundaries are usually sort of arbitrary in etymology anyway. More successful than I thought it would be actually, gives me some new ideas, especially using different colors to thread through branches of meaning. (info from etymonline)
