Cor­rer — Re­cur

Al­though we’ve al­ready dis­cussed the et­y­mol­o­gy of cor­rer (Span­ish for “to run”) and its con­nec­tion to the Eng­lish horse, there is an­oth­er — more ob­vi­ous — con­nec­tion that helps us re­mem­ber it:

Re­cur. Re­cur lit­er­al­ly comes from the Latin re­cur­rere, mean­ing “to run back and forth”: re — cor­rer. Yes, that which re­curs keeps on run­ning back and forth!
