Research the etymology (the study of the origins of words) and examples of how the word is used today to expand on the definition.
Make sure the paper includes information on the origins and etymology of the word, as well as its various uses.
For your thesis statement, consider using the basic definition, the etymology, and how the word is used today as your three support points.
