Synonyms of "Origin" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between origin and origination ?

They are exactly the same word, but because they entered the English language at different times and through different means, there has been a misconception that they are somehow different. They absolutely are not.

Basically, the ancient French word for origin was “origination“, while origin itself is much closer to the original Latin root word - origio.

Many words entered English from the Latin that was known from the Bible; but at the same time, many words entered English from the French occupiers between 1100 and 1400. Since French is basically a type of Latin, these words are often extremely similar if not identical.

Q: What is the difference between origin and origins ?

The word can be pluralized if one is talking about having multiple origins, or places of beginning. It should be noted that multiple things can have a single origin.

Origins has become the preferred term to discuss or describe ancestry. This is not based on any kind of grammar rule, it is simply more common, falling in the murky category of what ‘sounds right’.
