Etymologies

from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition

[Origin unknown.]

from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

Unknown; many unproven theories exist, all of which lack supporting evidence. Theories include that the term originated among African Americans in the US South in the early 20th century or late 19th century; that it was first used by British soldiers stationed in Palestine before 1948, based on the Hebrew הכל בסדר (hakól b'séder, "everything is O.K."); and Louisiana French or Italian provenance. Jazz historians attribute the word's coinage to Bill "Bojangles" Robinson.

  • Isn't that funny -- I've always hated this word as well. I wonder why it has earned such disdain? There must be a common thread...

    July 19, 2008

  • Can't believe I just said "coolissimo".

  • We have a true mystery on our hands. It certainly seems like some of the expressions are crazier than others. The Native American would be from Washington state, which is way outside the bounds of where it was used. The Yiddish also seems ridiculous. French is somewhat reasonable, especially given the usage in Louisiana by people like Satchmo. Without finding some 19th century writing (very unlikely), we will never know.

  • Everyone else seemed to be confused, but for me- all was copacetic.
