Question: Why do scientists call it research when looking for something new?
Asked by abzdebest to Jemma, John, Katie, Lisa on 9 Jul 2012.

I’ve come across this before – it comes from old French and means something like “to go in search of”. The “re” part of it is not related to re-doing something, it is simply just the translation from French.
