comment Does a gerund always end with -ing? If so, why?
A past participle isn't necessarily a gerund, the two are brothers but the one isn't a subset of the other.

comment Synonym for “engrooved”
@Synhelp, I've edited my answer. "Broken in" is the closest thing I can think of. It basically has that idea.

comment Etymology of “history” and why the “hi-” prefix?
Story = fictional narrative? According to Google, a story is an account of something (real, imagined, or false), whereas history is the events behind a story. War stories are history, but war history is not stories, it is hate, blood, and killing (with a few exceptions).
