Word hoard as it is, the English language is rife with redundancies. It contains a root word “hol” that comes from two different places and means two different things. “Hol-” coming from Old English means “hole” or “to hollow something out.” “Hol-” coming from Ancient Greek means “whole.” The term holistic as used by your Horsham chiropractor comes from the Ancient Greek etymology. Spelling it with a “w” is acceptable and first appeared in 1941.
