Could the word 'MOM' have originated in Hebrew? ima (ee-ma) is mom.

"Panties in a wad" is just an expression meaning unduly discomfited and I really don't care if you wear them, boxers, briefs or go "commando." It isn't male chauvinism or misogynistic, you are simply being hysterical ;-)
Don't liken me with Buck Crick - on most topics we are diametrical opposites.(I've managed to get his panties in a twist before, too.) I don't find it a non sequitur that anglophiles, francophiles (you know who you are), religies or pseudo-patriots arguments are emotionally skewed because of their proclivities.
Would that it be For the last time, but you seem to be fixated on the notion that my agreement on the origin and evolution of English is a personal affront. But hey, "whatever blows your dress up", as they say....
Alcohol:
1540s (early 15c. as alcofol), "fine powder produced by sublimation," from Medieval Latin alcohol "powdered ore of antimony," from Arabic al-kuhul "kohl," the fine metallic powder used to darken the eyelids, from kahala "to stain, paint." The al- is the Arabic definite article, "the."
"Powdered cosmetic" was the earliest sense in English; definition broadened 1670s to "any sublimated substance, the pure spirit of anything," including liquids. Modern sense of "intoxicating ingredient in strong liquor" is first recorded 1753, short for alcohol of wine, which was extended to "the intoxicating element in fermented liquors." In organic chemistry, the word was extended 1850 to the class of compounds of the same type as this.
pyjamas (n.)
also pyjama (adj.), chiefly British English spelling of pajamas. Early spellings in English also include pai jamahs (1800); pigammahs (1834), peijammahs (1840).
pajamas (n.)
1800, pai jamahs "loose trousers tied at the waist," worn by Muslims in India and adopted by Europeans there, especially for nightwear, from Hindi pajama, probably from Persian paejamah, literally "leg clothing," from pae "leg" (from PIE *ped- "foot," see foot (n.))+ jamah "clothing." Modern spelling (U.S.) is from 1845. British spelling tends toward pyjamas.
Did you have any point? At all?
It is a misogynistic slur deliberately meant to be hateful and used to insult women. You donít like the response you receive when you make such ignorant taunts then the answer should be fairly obvious.

There is a saying, if it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck then the chances are you have seen a bird of the Anatidae family. When you make invalid assumptions based on guesswork you liken yourself to buck whether you like it or not.

But you do find it non sequitur that any English language words come from the French language.

Hey I donít say you are making a personal affront, it was you that made it personal, donít come the innocent sloping shoulders with me. My argument (as I assume you already know) is with the distinction between originated and developed

The point is that alcohol is of Arabic origin and pyjamas are of Indian origin, modified, and incorporated into the English language.

It stands to reason that one of the oldest words should the one referring to mother. The Hebrew word for it is lma (ee-ma) or our word mom.

Piffle, lady. It's just a saying. Get over it. I'm not a Christian, but the language is so peppered with biblical references that no one can help but repeat them. Same thing. I've already stated that English is a hodge podge. Am I supposed to be surprised that Arabic and Indian words are incorporated along with every nearly other language on Earth? Most of the named stars are Arabic origin, as is the numbering system. The alphabet itself came from a long line of "them there foreigner" cultures. I'm neither offended nor intimidated by that... but then, I'm not French.

Sugar as we know it in the granulated form may be bad for us. Only in the last 100 years or so has it been widely available and we may been overloading with it.

Never before but it seems it can effect the joints and make them feel puffy...have you felt that before from eating a huge amount of it, like 4 bowls of cereal?

Also I just read yogurt of all sorts can be added instead of egg...I already thought that coffee yogurt muffins with instant coffee added for that extra kick in the morning...

I can't wait to get baking some more...

Carbon dust is mostly what is left when our bodies die and turn back to the dust of the earth. I think when we eat too much sugar, we may be overloading a system which had not been conditioned to the substance in such great amounts.

Yeah right, itís fine when you do it but piffle when the nature of your abuse is mentioned. Then when itís returned in kind you take the incredulity stance. Are you sure you are not christian?

It seem that you are surprised considering only a few days ago you told the world that you agreed with Charlie Idiot and that the language ďORIGINATEDĒ in England.
Here let me remind you - http://www.topix.com/forum/news/evolution/T9Q...
Are you sure you arenít christian?

Funny really, I am also not French so I guess thatís another of your big and bold guesses down the toilet, just like all your other big and bold guesses. Are you sure you arenít christian?

And I keep asking you and you keep NOT responding, WTH has the fact that I like France got to do with 28% of the English language being of French origin? Methinks you place far too much value on my contribution, either that are itís just another way for you to be nasty and insulting. Are you sure you arenít christian?

Honey, here is a little hint, I only every give people one chance, I find that if they blow it once then that defines the type of person they are and you have blown it by your misogynous insulting of my gender, not once but several times. I realise that this statement too will spark all sorts of incredulity and to be perfectly honest I donít really care how much you huff and puff but at least now you now know that when you insult me then I will ALWAYS respond in kind.

P.S. You repeatedly castigate the French for being French. Please tell, what have you got against people defending their culture, there way of life?.
