Why We Say "OK"

Submitted by: daegog 2 months ago in Misc


I wonder when the Word OK became OK?

From the start I'm thinking "idiotic" .... ' Okay ' is a four letter word, not two.
What does is mean?  "okay" means   ' affirmative ' or ' approval '

So this video claims 'OK' was early cockney slang?  'KS' knuff said..... Barney Rubble ...trouble

As for "K" appearing in modern corporate logos. that could be for 'kosher' which makes it a jewish conspiracy!
A HA ! Found you out!

This video over-thought the topic.

Great video. I wasn't aware that the derivation of OK had been determined beyond debate, but this video makes a convincing case that it has. That's great news seeing as OK (or okay) has become such an indispensable part of English and many other languages.

Daegog, you submit so much good content! Great work. Thanks.
