Did you know?

If you’re really intent on expediting something, you jump in with both feet—or place a single foot where it will be most effective! And when you do, you’re drawing on the etymology of expedite itself. The word comes from the Latin verb expedire (“to extricate, prepare, be useful”), a word that traces back to the root ped- or pes, meaning “foot.” Expedite has been used in English since at least the 15th century.
