    If your ever in a large public library or even better a university's research library have them pull the oldest dictionary they have in storage and check it out.

    Most clergymen would meet the definition of being bigots.

    We all know the definition of "awe." Something that you fear but respect.

    We now hear the term "awesome." Used and rarely having anything to do with something you fear but respect.

    The first time I ever heard the word used was during the early 70's when sailors were returning to Port Hueme on an observation ship that observed a French nuclear test in the South Pacific. Some sailors said the nuclear blast was "awesome." Were they the first to create this word ? I don't know but it was the first time I heard the word "awesome" being used and you will not find it in a dictionary that was published before 1976.

    ive actually done similar things, what else i like doing is my great grandmother had an encyclopedia set and i like looking at it, just something right of the top of my head panther isnt in it, "puma" is though.

    Like i said language evolves, some grows, some dies and i do find it interesting

    I have to invest in an old dictionary from the 1800's.

    Not too many years ago I had a library pull the oldest dictionary they had in storage down in the basement. The oldest they had was published in 1932. I was curious why Nazis weren't right wing back then but left wing.
    This is off topic but I hear that the word dinosaur isn't in an 1828 dictionary. I also heard the definition of unicorn in an 1828 dictionary is different that what we understand unicorns to be.

    That's the platform the Democrats always run on: The mean Republicans want to take away your freebies!
    With that logic either side can claim the other is greedy because Republicans always want their taxes cut.

    How about the defenition of "siphon" ?

    It seems both Oxford and Webster had the wrong definition for over 100 years.

    Dictionary definition of 'siphon' has been wrong for nearly a century

    A schoolboy error in the Oxford English Dictionary's definition of 'siphon' has come to light after nearly 100 years in print

    Greedy is not giving the government your money? Is that in the latest dictionary?

    Scientific polling (which is what the Pew Research Institute does) is as good as you're going to get.

    Liberals and nonwhites have come to make up a slightly greater percentage of the Democratic base since 2008, perhaps indicating that the decline in Democratic affiliation since 2009 was proportionately greater among conservatives and whites.
    Liberals and nonwhites are not mutually exclusive. But congrats on your weak attempt to move the goalposts.

    You brought this up to me once. And I'd like to know what relevance this has, other than "dictionaries can sometimes get the historical origins of words wrong."

    This is just another bull**** red herring.
