The word 'welcome' may be interpreted as 'well-come', like 'well-received' and 'well-deserved'.

However, it stems from a Germanic word meaning "desired guest".

Perhaps under the influence of French 'bienvenu' ("welcome", literally "well-come"), the perception and the form of the English word and its Germanic cognates were altered. The infographic shows how.

Why can't more journalists reporting on "AI" straightforwardly say "This is bad, actually"? Case in point: In this article juxtaposing the grandiose claims of OpenAI et al with the massive environmental footprint of LLMs, Goldman still has to include this weird AI optimism:

Ads on the web don't actually *need* user tracking. Browsers don't *have to* cooperate with those who want to surveil us.
