according to one source I have, the etymological roots of "eschew" are
"OF (Old French) eschiver, Rom. skivare, Gmc. (Germanic) skeux (w) an
(OHG) sciuhen, G. scheuen, f. skeux (w) az. SHY."
Now this being said, I'd like to say that I opt for a combination of
diachrony and synchrony when I study a word. Synchrony, however, is
the most important aspect of word study.
