i still want a hybrid of the two words/concepts. etiology is the "study of
origination" (generic, greek mode). that's what i meant in the sentence.
both words give a sense of "tracking". but i wanted to focus on 'words' at
around 70%-65%. however, i did not want to confine myself to the rules of
linguistic study. or associate with existing institutions. it's a very
difficult time for me.

Etiology refers to the causes of a disease.

Etymology refers to the history of the development of word forms.
