    Many etymological dictionaries on the internet. The Oxford English Dictionary or Chambers will also give you the origin of words and are probably more 'academic'.

    You need to do the exact format that your professor said when he/she assigned the work. If you are not still in school and wish to publish your work, every publishing house will also have a preferred format that you must follow. Editors and professors are generally pretty great sticklers on this point. Find out for certain so you don't put in a lot of work be penalized over style issues.
