Celine from Honor, Michigan, asked about the word battery. It’s another word that has many meanings, though the original English word came directly from a French word that meant a beating.


·      an unlawful beating
·      a drum beat that signaled the start of an assault
·      an artillery bombardment
·      a number of pieces of artillery united for action
·      in baseball, the pitcher and the catcher, because they team up against the opposing batter
·      the platform on which artillery is mounted
·      an apparatus for producing electricity
·      a series of psychological or clinical tests
·      the percussion section of an orchestra
