    And then JSF19 is calling me grammar police...

      • I'm a grammar police.

        No "X" in place of "cks"

                • What's with this "Yankees" stuff, anyway?

                  --------------
                  The Oxford English Dictionary states that one of the earliest theories on the word derivation is from the Cherokee word "eankke" for coward as applied to the residents of New England. Also, as the Northeastern Native American approximation of the words English and Anglais.[5] It has been rejected by some linguists.[6]

                  The Oxford English Dictionary suggests the most plausible origin to be that it is derived from the Dutch first names "Jan" and "Kees".
                  --------------

                  OK, I liked the coward stuff until it said it originally applied to New Englanders (even though I'm not a native of that region). Too dangerous to tread there after that factoid.
                  The second one is even better, because it explains the allegiance of the YBF.

                    Etymology is a bit difficult in some cases. Most of the time it is obvious where a word comes from but in this case... Both sound very plausible to me.

                      New York was a former Dutch colony...that seems most likely due to that tie in.

                              I know. You know what we trade it for with the English? Surinam. Imagine that the Dutch would have kept New York, the first language probably would have been Dutch then. . Would have been a lot easier for me.
