WHENCE (_not comparable_) * From where; from which place or source. _WHENCE came I?_ _"Pork" comes from French, WHENCE we get most of our modern cooking terms._ * 1818, Mary Shelley, _Frankenstein_, Chapter 4: WHENCE, I often asked myself, did the principle of life proceed? * 1898, J. Meade Falkner, _Moonfleet_, Chapter 3: At first I could not tell what this new sound was, nor WHENCE it came, and now it seemed a little noise close by, and now a great noise in the distance. And then it grew nearer and more defined, and in a moment I knew it was the sound of voices talking. USAGE NOTES * This word is uncommon in modern usage; _from where_ is now usually substituted (as in the example sentence: _Where did I come from?_ or _From where did I come?_). It is now chiefly encountered in older works, or in poetic or literary writing. * _From whence_ has a strong literary precedent, appearing in Shakespeare and the King James Bible as well as in the writings of numerous Victorian-era writers. In recent times, however, it has been criticized as redundant by usage commentators. TRANSLATIONS
