acorn
*g-
*ag-
*og- (W3)

Den Werdegang von engl. "acorn" = dt. "Eichel" nachzuvollziehen ist nicht gerade einfach. Möglicherweise ist nicht mehr klar zu erkennen, welchen Anteil die Volksetymologie dabei einnimmt.

Vermutlich liegt als Wurzel ide. "*g-", "*ag-", "*og-", "*hógeh-" = dt. "wachsen", "Frucht", "Beere", engl. "grow", "fruit", "berry" zu Grunde. Als ältere Formen findet man mengl. "akorn", "acorne", altengl. "æcern", "akern" = dt. "Nuß", "Mastfutter von Waldbäumen", got. "akran" ("Frucht der Weide", "Ertrag der Eiche und Buche"), altnord. "akarn", proto-germ. "*akrana". Verwandt damit wären althdt. "ackeran", nddt. "ecker", dt. "Ecker", fries. "äkkene", fläm., ndl. "aker", dän. "agern", norw. "aakorn", ir. "áirne" (= dt. "Schlehe"), lit. "úoga".

Dies vorausgesetzt würde sich die Verbindung zur Wurzel ide. "*aug-" = dt. "wachsen", "aufstocken", "erhöhen", "steigen", "steigern", "vergrößern" anbieten, und damit zu einer großen Wortfamilie in der man dt. "August" ("der Erhabene"), dt. "Augment" zu lat. "augmentum" = dt. "Vermehrung", "Zuwachs", lat. "augere" = dt. "steigern", "vergrößern"), dt. "Auktion", engl. "auction" = dt. "Versteigerung" und viele andere antreffen kann.

Möglicherweise gibt es noch eine assoziative Verbindung über "Ertrag des offenen Landes", engl. "fruit of the open or unenclosed land") zu altengl. "æcer" = engl. "open land", got. "akrs", "akr-s" = dt. "Feld", "Weide", altfrz. "aigrun" = dt. "Frucht", "Gemüse", engl. "fruits and vegetables", zu einem fränkischen Ausgangswort und damit zu dt. "Acker", engl. "acre". Auf diesem Wege gelangt man zu ide. "*agro-s" = dt. "Feld", "Ackerland", und einem Verb ide. "*ag-" = dt. "(mit geschwungenen Armen) treiben". Die Verbindung stellt die Interpretation "Land außerhalb der Siedlungen, wohin das Vieh zum Weiden und Düngen des Bodens getrieben wurde" (Quelle: Duden - Das Herkunftswörterbuch).

Zwischenzeitlich kam es dann wohl zur volksetymologischen Verbindung zu altengl. "ac" = engl. "oak" = dt. "Eiche", ndl. "eik", schwed. "ek", dän. "eg" und engl. "corn" = engl. "grain" = dt. "Korn", "Getreide". Die dadurch geänderte Schreibweise erfolgte im 15. und 16. Jh. zu "ake-corn", "oke-corn", "ake-horn", "oke-horn". Im 17. Jh. kam die Schreibweise engl. "acron" auf, wohl in Angleichung an griech. "a'kron", "akron" = dt. "Spitze", "Gipfel", engl. "top", "point", "peak".

Wie die Entwicklung genau verlief läßt sich anscheinend nicht mehr mit Sicherheit nachvollziehen. Heute ist engl. "acorn" aber aufgeladen mit den Konnotationen "Frucht", "Acker", "Viehtrieb", "Eiche", "Korn", "Eicheln".


"Acorn" als Farbe: - #785840 - Acorn



Bei Adelung findet man:


Die "Eichel", plur. die -n,

1) Die längliche runde Frucht des Eichbaumes, welche vornehmlich zur Mastung der Schweine gebraucht wird. Die Schweine in die Eicheln schlagen, oder treiben. S. "Dachseichel" und "Harzeichel".

2) Figürlich, die Gestalt einer Eichel habend. Besonders wird so wohl in der Anatomie, als im gemeinem Leben, der äußerste Theil des männlichen Gliedes die Eichel genannt.

Anm. Die "Eichel", im Österreichischen "Dechel", ist vermittelst der Ableitungssylbe "-el" von dem Worte "Eiche" gebildet. Daß diese Form schon alt ist, erhellet aus dem Griech. "???", "Eichel", welches bereits bey dem Homer vorkommt, aber, dem Plato zu Folge, von nördlichern Völkern entlehnet ist. Ihre leitet unser Hochdeutsches "Eichel" von dem Schwed. "Ekallon" her, welches aus "Allon", "Frucht", zusammen gesetzt ist, und eigentlich "Eichfrucht" bedeutet; eine Ableitung, welche bey dem hohen Alter des Deutschen Wortes nicht Stich hält. Im Dän. heißt die "Eichel" nur schlechthin "Ollen" und "Olden", von dem alten "ala", "nähren" "alere", womit das Griech. "???" verwandt zu seyn scheinet.

Die gemeinen Mundarten Ober- und Niederdeutschlandes haben, so wie die nördlichen Sprachen, noch ein anderes Wort, die Frucht des Eichbaumes zu bezeichnen, welches "Ecker", Nieders. "Ekker", Dän. "Äggern", Angels. "Accaeren", "Accorn", "Aecern", Engl. "Acorn", Isl. "Akern", Griech. "???", lautet, aber so wie das Goth. "Akran" ursprünglich eine jede Frucht bedeutet. Die Frucht des Buchbaumes heißt im Österreichischen "Ackeram", an andern Orten "Buchecker", S. "Buscheichel". In einigen eigenthümlichen Nahmen, z. B. "Eichelstein", soll "Eichel" aus dem Latein. "Aquila" verderbt seyn. Schilter kennet noch ein anderes Wort "eichel", welches "ganz" bedeutet haben soll. Doch er führet zu dessen Beweise nur die Oberdeutschen Ausdrücke, "eichel" "ganz", "eichel" "weis", d. i. "völlig ganz" an, welche aber auch Figuren von "Eichel", "glans", seyn können, weil an der glatten runden Eichel die geringste Verstümmelung sichtbar ist.

"glans" L. "glans" = "acorn". Used for the head of the penis, which is shaped somewhat like an "acorn".


(E?)(L?) http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=acorn

"acorn" (n.) Old English "æcern" "nut", common Germanic (cognates: Old Norse "akarn", Dutch "aker", Low German "ecker" "acorn", German "Ecker", Gothic "akran" "fruit"), originally the mast of any forest tree, and ultimately related (via notion of "fruit of the open or unenclosed land") to Old English "æcer" "open land", Gothic "akrs" "field", Old French "aigrun" "fruits and vegetables" (from Frankish or some other Germanic source); see "acre".

The sense gradually restricted in Low German, Scandinavian, and English to the most important of the forest produce for feeding swine, the mast of the oak tree. Spelling changed 15c.-16c. by folk etymology association with "oak" (Old English ac) and "corn" (n.1).


(E?)(L?) http://www.foodreference.com/html/facorns.html

ACORN TRIVIA

Acorns are true nuts, and are the fruit of the oak tree. They have a high content of tannins, making them bitter and astringent if eaten raw.

Some varieties are unpleasantly astringent and only suitable as food in time of famine. Other varieties, such as several growing in the Mediterranean area, are sweeter and some are considered comparable to chestnuts, especially in Spain and Portugal. White Oak and Chestnut Oak are two of the sweeter types and the Black and Red Oak are more bitter tasting.

PUTTING THE CORN IN ACORN.
... As the OED says: The formal history of this word has been much perverted by "popular etymology". OE. "æcern" neut., pl. "æcernu", is "cogn". w. ONor. "akarn" neut. (Dan. "agern", Norw. "aakorn"), Dutch "aker" "acorn", OHG. "ackeran" masc. and neut. (mod.G. "ecker", pl. "eckern") "oak or beech mast", Goth. "akran" "fruit", prob. a deriv. of Goth. "akr-s", ONor. "akr", OE. "æcer" "field", orig. "open unenclosed country", "the plain". Hence "akran" appears to have been originally "fruit of the unenclosed land", "natural produce of the forest", "mast of oak", beech, etc., as in HG., extended in Gothic to "fruit" generally, and gradually confined in Low G., Scand., and Eng., to the most important forest produce, the "mast of the oak". (See Grimm, under "Ackeran" and "Ecker".) In Ælfric's "Genesis" xliv. 11, it had perhaps still the wider sense, a reminiscence of which also remains in the ME. "akernes of okes". Along with this restriction of application, there arose a tendency to find in the name some connexion with "oak", OE. "ác", north. "ake", "aik". Hence the 15th and 16th c. refashionings "ake-corn", "oke-corn", "ake-horn", "oke-horn", with many pseudo-etymological and imperfectly phonetic variants. Of these the 17th c. literary "acron" seems to simulate the Gr. "a'kron" top, point, peak. The normal mod. repr. of OE. "æcern" would be "akern", "akren", or ? "atchern" as already in [the 14th c.]; the actual "acorn" is due to the 16th c. fancy that the word "corn" formed part of the name.

William Falconer's Dictionary of the Marine

"ACORN" (pomme de girülette, Fr.) a little ornamental piece of wood, fashioned like a cone, and fixed on the uppermost point of the spindle, above the vane, on the mast-head. It is used to keep the vane from being blown off from the spindle in a whirlwind, or when the ship leans much to one side under sail.

See plate I. Fig. 1. where a represents the acorn, b the vane and stock, c the spindle, and d the mast-head.

The Tempest
*The Tempest* is generally accepted as Shakespeare’s last complete play, with a performance date around 1611.

"gland" - "acorn"


(E?)(L?) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acorn

Acorn

The "acorn", or "oak nut", is the nut of the oaks and their close relatives (genera Quercus and Lithocarpus, in the family Fagaceae). It usually contains a single seed (occasionally two seeds), enclosed in a tough, leathery shell, and borne in a cup-shaped cupule. Acorns are 1–6 cm long and 0.8–4 cm broad. Acorns take between 6 and 24 months (depending on the species) to mature; see List of Quercus species for details of oak classification, in which acorn morphology and phenology are important factors.
...
Etymology

The word (earlier "akerne", and "acharn") is related to the Gothic name "akran", which had the sense of "fruit of the unenclosed land". The word was applied to the most important forest produce, that of the oak. Chaucer spoke of "achornes of okes" in the 14th century. By degrees, popular etymology connected the word both with "corn" and "oak-horn", and the spelling changed accordingly.

egg corn (W3)

Ein engl. "eggcorn", "egg corn", "egg-corn" besteht aus einer unüblichen Schreibweise um einem dem Schreiber unvertrauten Wort einen Sinn zu geben. So wird aus einem undeutlich verstandenen engl. "reckless" ein engl. "wreckless".

"eggcorn" = "a spell-as-you-speak error"

Engl. "eggcorn" wird im "Languagelog" als Bezeichnung für ein falsch verstandenes Wort benutzt. "Eggcorn" selbst ist ebenfalls als falsch verstandenes engl. "acorn" = dt. "Eichel" entstanden. Und selbst dieses engl. "acorn" soll ein früheres Missverständnis enthalten. Dabei wurden dt. "Acker", das dt. "offene Land" mit dt. "Ecker" mhd. "ecker", "ackeran" = dt. "Eichel", "Buchecker", und griech. "akron" = dt. "Spitze" in einen Topf geworfen.

Eingeführt wurde die Bezeichnung "eggcorn" im September 2003 von dem Linguisten Geoffrey Pullum im Online Forum "The Language Log". Der Linguist, Mark Liberman, hatte zuvor erwähnt, dass eine Frau "eggcorn" statt "acorn" geschrieben hatte. Professor Pullum nahm dieses Beispiel einer falschen Schreibweise infolge einer falschen Aussprache zum Anlaß die Klasse solcher Falschschreibungen mit diesem Wort zu versehen.

"eggcorn" soll jedoch schon in einer Quelle aus dem Jahr 1844 zu finden sein in der Form engl. "egg corn bread" für "acorn bread".


... discussing the case of a woman who wrote "egg corns" for "acorns". It turns out that this is fairly widespread, probably the product of a dialect in which "egg" is pronounced "aig". Since then the "eggcorn" has become something of a "mascot" at Language Log; today Mark discusses it further, giving the example "hand few" used for "handful" and quoting "Geoff Pullum" to the effect that "eggcorns are tiny little poems, a symptom of human intelligence and creativity," and ends with an Update mentioning a fact I should have recalled myself: the word "acorn" itself contains an earlier misunderstanding.

No wonder "acorn" is such an awkward word, with its half-stressed second syllable, and no wonder people keep eggcorning it. I wish it had been allowed its natural development to "akern", "akren", or "atchern" - but then I wish the plural of "book" had been allowed to develop naturally into "beech". I like the rough surfaces left by nature.

EGGCORN IN THE OED.

September 16, 2010 by languagehat 9 Comments

I am absolutely delighted to learn that Geoff Pullum’s coinage "eggcorn" (which I wrote about back in 2004) has made it to the official word-hoard of the English language. There is now a draft entry (Sept. 2010) for "eggcorn", n., 1. = "ACORN" n., 2. An alteration of a word or phrase through the mishearing or reinterpretation of one or more of its elements as a similar-sounding word. In allusion to sense 1, which is an example of such an alteration. Here are the citations:

2003 M. LIBERMAN "Egg Corns": Folk Etymol., Malapropism, Mondegreen? (Update) in languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu (Weblog) 30 Sept. (O.E.D. Archive), Geoff Pullum suggests that if no suitable term already exists for cases like this, we should call them "egg corns", in the metonymic tradition of "mondegreen". 2004 Boston Globe (Nexis) 12 Dec. K5 Shakespeare’s Hamlet said he was "to the manner born", but the "eggcorn" "to the manor born" has wide currency. 2006 New Scientist 26 Aug. 52/2 Eggcorns often involve replacing an unfamiliar or archaic word with a more common one, such as "old-timer’s" disease for "Alzheimer’s". 2010 K. DENHAM & A. LOBECK Linguistics for Everyone i. 13 Crucially, eggcorns make sense, often more than the original words.

I got the good news from Ben Zimmer’s post at the Log.

Spotted in the wild:

"Eggcorn", at first "egg corn", is the original "eggcorn". This misspelling for "acorn" was first reported by Mark Liberman at Language Log, citing a discovery by Chris Potts, on September 23, 2003. Geoffrey Pullum suggested the term "eggcorn" to refer to this particular kind of spontaneous "malapropism".

The word "acorn" itself may have undergone the same reshaping process, ie once have been an "eggcorn". See the American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition, 2000:

ETYMOLOGY: Middle English "akorn", from Old English "æcern".

WORD HISTORY: A thoughtful glance at the word "acorn" might produce the surmise that it is made up of "oak" and "corn", especially if we think of "corn" in its sense of "a kernel or seed of a plant", as in peppercorn. The fact that others thought the word was so constituted partly accounts for the present form "acorn". Here we see the workings of the process of linguistic change known as folk etymology, an alteration in form of a word or phrase so that it resembles a more familiar term mistakenly regarded as analogous. "Acorn" actually goes back to Old English "æcern", "acorn", which in turn goes back to the Indo-European root "*g–", meaning "fruit", "berry".

This was reported by Daniel Ezra Johnson and documented by Mark Liberman.

"Egg corns": folk etymology, malapropism, mondegreen, ???

Chris Potts has told me about a case in which a woman wrote "egg corns" for "acorns". This might be taken to be a folk etymology, like "Jerusalem" for "girasole" in "Jerusalem artichoke" (a kind of sunflower). But it might also be treated as something like a "mondegreen" (also here and here), the kind of "slip of the ear" that is especially common in learning songs and poems. Finally, it's also something like a "malapropism", where a word is mistakenly substituted for one of similar sound shape.

Although the example is somewhat like each of these three named categories of errors, it's not exactly any of them. Can anyone suggest a better term?

At greater length:

It's not a folk etymology, because this is the usage of one person rather than an entire speech community.

It's not a "malapropism", because "egg corn" and "acorn" are really homonyms (at least in casual pronunciation), while pairs like "allegory" for "alligator," "oracular" for "vernacular" and "fortuitous" for "fortunate" are merely similar in sound (and may also share some aspects of spelling and morphemic content).

It's not a "mondegreen" because the mis-construal is not part of a song or poem or similar performance.

Note, by the way, that the author of this mis-hearing may be a speaker of the dialect in which "beg" has the same vowel as the first syllable of "bagel". For these folks, "egg corn" and "acorn" are really homonyms, if the first is not spoken so as to artificially separate the words.

[update (9/30/2003):

Geoff Pullum suggests that if no suitable term already exists for cases like this, we should call them "egg corns", in the metonymic tradition of "mondegreen", since the eponymous solution of "malapropism" and "spoonerism" is not appropriate.]

"eggcorn", noun

MEANING:

An erroneous alteration of a word or phrase, by replacing an original word with a similar sounding word, such that the new word or phrase also makes a kind of sense.

For example: "ex-patriot" instead of "expatriate" and "mating name" instead of "maiden name".

ETYMOLOGY:

Coined by linguist Geoffrey Pullum (b. 1945) in 2003. From the substitution of the word "acorn" with "eggcorn". Earliest documented use as a name for this phenomenon is from 2003, though the term "eggcorn" has been found going back as far as 1844, as "egg corn bread" for "acorn bread".

About "eggcorn"

An "eggcorn" is an idiosyncratic substitution of a word or phrase for a word or words that sound similar or identical. The new phrase introduces a meaning that is different from the original, but plausible in the same context. This is as opposed to a "malapropism", where the substitution creates a nonsensical phrase.

The term was coined by professor of linguistics Geoffrey Pullum in September 2003.

This Is What "Eggcorns" Are (and Why They’re Jar-Droppingly Good)

Katy Steinmetz @katysteinmetz, May 30, 2015

"Eggcorns" are a special, productive kind of mistake. They are created when someone mixmatches the letters in a word — or the words in a phrase — but the result still makes sense. In fact, sometimes the messed up version makes even better sense than the original one. An "eggcorner" might, for instance, use "mixmatches" instead of "mismatches". An "eggcorner" might assert that something is "jar-droppingly" good rather than "jaw-droppingly". If you’ve ever told someone they’re a "real trooper" or said you’re "chomping at the bit", then you are an "eggcorner", too.

(E?)(L?) http://nancyfriedman.typepad.com/away_with_words/eggcorns/

...
So it seems that a lot of people are substituting "gist" (the real point, the crux) for "grist" (grain) because they think it’s logical. In other words, they’re using a type of "malapropism" known as an "eggcorn".

"Gist" is certainly more familiar than "grist" to modern-day, non-grain-grinding speakers of English. When "gist" and "grist" are pitted against each other in GoogleFight, the results are decisive.

Of course, the two words have different consonant sounds: the "G" in "gist" is /j/, while the "G" in "grist" is /g/. So I’m guessing that this particular "eggcorn" is based on mis-reading rather than mis-hearing. That is, if it’s an "eggcorn" at all: I couldn’t find it in the "Eggcorn Database", which contains many examples of eggcorns based on mis-hearing: for all intensive purposes and minus well are among the most common.

Brand names, children’s games, and the etiquette of phone conversations. Those clever plastic PEZ dispensers come in all shapes and sizes—but where did the word PEZ come from? The popular candy’s name is the product of wordplay involving the German word for “peppermint.” Also, the story behind that sing-songy playground taunt: “Neener, neener, NEEEEEEEEEEner!” Listen [...]

Pantywaist
Posted February 29, 2016 .
If someone’s called a pantywaist, they’re being disparaged as weak or timid. The term refers to a baby garment popular in the early 20th century that snapped at the waist. Some people misunderstand the term as pantywaste, but that’s what linguists jokingly call an eggcorn. This is part of a complete episode.

A Dancer Who Walks for a Living
Posted July 5, 2014 .
You dream of writing the great American novel, but to make ends meet, you spend your days writing boring corporate reports. There’s a difference between writing for love and writing for a living — or is there? Does a heyday have anything to do with hay? Did getting dressed to kill originally refer to soldiers? [...]

Brown as a Berry
Posted April 25, 2014 .
It used to be that you called any mixed-breed dog a mutt. But at today’s dog parks, you’re just as likely to run into schnugs, bassadors, and dalmadoodles. Also, if someone has a suntan, you might say he’s brown as a berry. But then, when’s the last time you saw a berry that was brown? [...]

Slake Your Thirst
Posted May 19, 2012 .
To slake your thirst is to quench your thirst. But some people have been switching it to slate your thirst or other variants. It’s a classic case of an eggcorn, or one of those words that people mishear, and then start pronouncing incorrectly; for example, when misheard, acorn can become eggcorn. This is part of [...]

Why Do Girls Wear Pink?
Posted May 19, 2012 .
We all know that the color pink is for boys and the color blue is for girls — at least, that’s how it was 100 years ago. Grant and Martha share the surprising history behind the colors we associate with gender. Plus, we go rollin’ in our hooptie, play a game of guess-that-Google-search, and get [...]

Greetings! In our latest show, we talk about an expression familiar to many African-Americans but little known outside that community, "I couldn't buy a louse in a wrestling jacket." Also, what does it mean if your dog is "doppick" or "nixie"? How do you pronounce the word spelled n-i-c-h-e? Should you rhyme it with "itch" [...]

"eggcorn", noun

MEANING:

An erroneous alteration of a word or phrase, by replacing an original word with a similar sounding word, such that the new word or phrase also makes a kind of sense.

For example: "ex-patriot" instead of "expatriate" and "mating name" instead of "maiden name".

ETYMOLOGY:

Coined by linguist Geoffrey Pullum (b. 1945) in 2003. From the substitution of the word "acorn" with "eggcorn". Earliest documented use as a name for this phenomenon is from 2003, though the term "eggcorn" has been found going back as far as 1844, as "egg corn bread" for "acorn bread".
...

...
The term was invented by the linguist Geoffrey Pullum in September 2003 in an online forum called "The Language Log". Another linguist, Mark Liberman, had mentioned a woman who wrote "eggcorn" instead of "acorn", since in her American regional speech the first vowels are the same; she also probably says beg like the first syllable of bagel. Professor Pullum suggested this example should lend its name to the whole class of such misanalyses. Their essential quality is the change of a word into another which is either said the same or is closely similar and which seems to make at least as good sense in context as the original. It has now become quite well established, not least because journalists find it great fun to explain such an odd term and give examples.

Eggcorn Database

(E?)(L?) http://eggcorns.lascribe.net/

This site collects unusual spellings of a particular kind, which have come to be called eggcorns. Typical examples include "free reign" ("reign" = "Herrschaft") (instead of "free rein") ("rein" = "Zügel") or hone in on (instead of home in on), and many more or less common reshapings of words and expressions: a word or part of a word is semantically reanalyzed, and the spelling reflects the new interpretation. The About page offers more information on the history of the term and of this collection.

The Eggcorn Database went public on February 15, 2005. New entries and features are being added regularly.


(E?)(L?) http://eggcorns.lascribe.net/about/

The idea to embark on this project hatched in November 2004. I had been interested in language for a long time and become an avid reader of the numerous linguistics blogs that thrive in the English-speaking segment of the blogosphere. Six months earlier I had started a bilingual blog of my own. During the same period, I was working on my web site development and programming skills by learning a little Python and diving into the code of the WordPress blogging tool, which is written in PHP and interfaces with a MySQL Database.
