War Adds Words
To Our Langauge
(By Associated Collegiate Press)
America will have many new
words and phrases added to the lan
guage when the bpys come marching
home again from the far corners of
the world, and the English lan-
guasfo will be enriched by them; in
thd opinion of Prof. Walter K. Smart
of tlie Medill school of journalisui at
“Contacts with other races and
other peoples invariably bring in
additions to the language,” Prof.
Smart said. “Wars and invasions
through the ages have added many
new word forms while mariners and
settler s have been responsible for
.“From the Indians we got such
words as moose, hickory, hominy,
skunk, persimmon, toboggan, ‘moc
casin, wigwam, and squaw. During
and after the Mexican war when the
southwest was opened to American
settlers we acquired a number of
words from the Spanish including,
adobe, burro, canyon, corral, c oyote,
sombrero, mustang, and lasso.”
With soldiers in every part of
the world, the words that they will
bring home will be as varied as the
battlefields on which the fighting is
taking place, Prof. Smart said. The
war has already produced a number
of words and phrases that seem de
stined to attain a place^in the lan
Tie referred specifically to “Quis
ling” when used to designate a per
son who betrays his own people.
Other words which have sprung
from war or related activities are:
“Commando,” “blitz,” “fifth col
umn,” “fox hole,” “jeep,” “ersatz,”
“spearhead,” “gremlin,” “black
out,” ‘ ‘ paratroops,” and ‘ ‘ ceiling.”
The lotter has acquired a new mean
ing when referring to ‘ ‘ top limit.”
Many words which became popular
during the first World war are still
in use years later, he said. Not
only did the doughboys of 1918 learn
to sing “Mademoiselle from Arm-
entieres,” and “Madelon,” but they
also picked up a number of French
werds that still liv^e. Among these
J’re “beaucoup,” “parley vouz,” and
“tout de suite,” the latter being
popularized by the Americans as
Some of the words that grew out
of the first World war are now so
common that we have almost for
gotten their original source. Prof.
umart said. Such words as “dud,”
“doughboy,” “pill - box,” “went
west” “cnrry on,” “shock troops,”
“douFout,” “barrage,”; “cooties,”
and “defeatist,” were either war
terms or grew out of the war.
