- thrill:  Etymologically, thrill denotes ‘make a hole in’. It is a Middle English alteration of Old English thyrlian ‘pierce’, a derivative of thyrl ‘hole’ (source of the second syllable of nostril). And this in turn was formed from thurh ‘through’. The notion of ‘making a hole’ led in the 16th century to the metaphorical ‘pierce with emotion’, but the narrowing down of this to ‘fill with pleasure’ seems to be a comparatively recent development, from the late 19th century. Its earlier wider connotations are preserved in the derivative thriller ‘exciting story’ .
