The Last 18 Years Before the 9 11 Emerge n c y Code . . .

person (n.)

c. 1200, persoun, “an individual, a human being,” from Old French persone “human being, anyone, person” (12c., Modern French personne) and directly from Latin persona “human being, person, personage; a part in a drama, assumed character,” originally “a mask, a false face,” such as those of wood or clay, covering the whole head, worn by the actors in later Roman theater. OED offers the general 19c. explanation of persona as “related to” Latin personare “to sound through” (i.e. the mask as something spoken through and perhaps amplifying the voice), “but the long o makes a difficulty ….” Klein and Barnhart say it is possibly borrowed from Etruscan phersu “mask.” De Vaan has no entry for it.

From mid-13c. as “one of the persons of the Trinity,” a theological use in Church Latin of the classical word. Meanings “one’s physical being, the living body; external appearance” are from late 14c. In grammar, “one of the relations which a subject may have to a verb,” from 1510s. In legal use, “corporate body or corporation other than the state and having rights and duties before the law,” 15c., short for person aggregate (c. 1400), person corporate (mid-15c.).

The use of -person to replace -man in compounds for the sake of gender neutrality or to avoid allegations of sexism is recorded by 1971 (in chairperson). In person “by bodily presence” is from 1560s. Person-to-person is attested by 1919, originally of telephone calls.

Origin and meaning of person

coronavirus (n.)

type of RNA virus affecting birds and mammals, in humans as a respiratory tract infection, by 1968, is so called for the spikes that protrude from its membranes and resemble the corona of the sun; see corona.  Covid as a contraction of coronavirus disease seems to have been coined for the outbreak that began in China in 2019 (COVID-19).

Twin Towers

Construction work began on the North Tower in August 1968, and construction on the South Tower was under way by January 1969.[78]

In 1968, AT&T announced that it would establish the digits 9-1-1 (nine-one-one) as the emergency code throughout the United States. The code 9-1-1 was chosen because it best fit the needs of all parties involved. First, and most important, it met public requirements because it is brief, easily remembered, and can be dialed quickly.

cunnilingus (n.)

1884 (by 1845 in German, 1824 in medical Latin), from Latin cunnus “vulva, female pudenda” (also, vulgarly, “a woman”) + lingere “to lick” (from PIE root *leigh- “to lick”). Latin cunnus is of disputed origin, perhaps literally “gash, slit,” from PIE *sker- (1) “to cut,” or [Watkins] literally “sheath,” from PIE *kut-no-, from root *(s)keu- “to cover, conceal.”

The Latin properly would mean “one who licks a vulva,” but it is used in English in reference to the action. The verb ought to be *cunnilingue. As an agent-noun, Fletcher has lick-twat (1656). Gordon Williams [“A Dictionary of Sexual Language and Imagery in Shakespearean and Stuart Literature,” 1994] writes that Nicolas Chorier’s 17c. “Satyra Sotadica” “relates how Gonsalvo of Cordova, as an old man, would lick his mistress’s middle parts, which he called, with a geographical pun, going to Liguria” (from Latin ligurio “to lick”).

Cunnilingus was a very familiar manifestation in classical times; … it tends to be especially prevalent at all periods of high civilization. [Havelock Ellis, “Studies in the Psychology of Sex,” 1905]

Dutch slang has a useful noun, de befborstel, to refer to the mustache specifically as a tool for stimulating the clitoris; probably from beffen “to stimulate the clitoris with the tongue.”

cunning (adj.)

early 14c., conning, “learned, skillful, possessing knowledge,” present participle of connencunnen “to know,” from Old English cunnan (see can (v.1)), from PIE root *gno- “to know.” Also compare cun (v.). Sense of “skillfully deceitful, characterized by crafty ingenuity” is probably by late 14c. Related: Cunningly.

cunning (n.)

c. 1300, conninge, “knowledge, understanding, information, learning,” a sense now obsolete, verbal noun from connen, cunnen “to have ability or capacity,” from Old English cunnan (see can v.1). By mid-14c. as “ability to understand, intelligence; wisdom, prudence;” sense of “cleverness, shrewdness, practical skill in a secret or crafty manner” is by late 14c.

can (v.1)

Old English 1st & 3rd person singular present indicative of cunnan “to know,” less commonly as an auxiliary, “to have power to, to be able,” (also “to have carnal knowledge”), from Proto-Germanic *kunnjanan “to be mentally able, to have learned” (source also of Old Norse kenna “to become acquainted, try,” Old Frisian kanna “to recognize, admit, know,” German kennen “to know,” Middle Dutch kennen “to know,” Gothic kannjan “to make known”), from PIE root *gno- “to know.”

It holds now only the third sense of “to know,” that of “to know how to do something” (as opposed to “to know as a fact” and “to be acquainted with” something or someone). Also used in the sense of may, denoting mere permission. An Old English preterite-present verb, its original past participle, couth, survived only in negation (see uncouth), but compare could. The present participle has spun off with a deflected sense as cunning.

linguist (n.)

1580s, “a master of languages;” also “one who uses his tongue freely,” a hybrid from Latin lingua “language, tongue” (from PIE root *dnghu- “tongue”) + -ist. Meaning “a student of language” first attested 1640s. Compare French linguiste, Spanish linguista. English in 17c. had an adjective linguacious “talkative” (1650s). Linguister (1640s) was the old name in early colonial New England for an interpreter between Europeans and Indians (Lowell used it in a sense “dabbler in philology, linguist”). Linguistician is attested from 1895.

-ist word-forming element meaning “one who does or makes,” also used to indicate adherence to a certain doctrine or custom, from French -iste and directly from Latin -ista (source also of Spanish, Portuguese, Italian -ista), from Greek agent-noun ending -istes, which is from -is-, ending of the stem of verbs in -izein, + agential suffix -tes.

Variant -ister (as in choristerbarrister) is from Old French -istre, on false analogy of ministre. Variant -ista is from Spanish, popularized in American English 1970s by names of Latin-American revolutionary movements.

linguistic (adj.)

“of or pertaining to the study of language,” 1824, from German linguistisch (1807); see linguist + -ic. The use of linguistic to mean “of or pertaining to language or languages” (1847) is “hardly justifiable etymologically,” according to OED, but “has arisen because lingual suggests irrelevant associations.” Related: Linguisticallinguistically.

To the science which may be formed by comparing languages, the term Linguistic has been applied by some German authors. It is not, however, generally adopted, and is liable to some objections. [“Biblical Repository,” vol. vii, no. 21, Jan. 1836]
