in Indo-European roots.Word History: Fuck
is an old word, although throughout its history it has probably been uttered in speech much more than it has been written in manuscripts or printed in books. Some of the first first written evidence we have of the word fuck
is found in a poem composed in a mixture of Latin and English sometime before 1500. In the manuscript of the poem, some of the lines are even written in code—to hide the lewd nature of the text or perhaps to offer the reader the fun of deciphering the verses and discovering the bawdy words within. The poem, which satirizes the Carmelite friars of Cambridge, England, takes its title, “Flen flyys,” from the first words of its opening line, “Flen, flyys, and freris,”
that is, “fleas, flies, and friars.” The line that contains fuck
reads “Non sunt in coeli, quia gxddbov xxkxzt pg ifmk.”
The Latin words “Non sunt in coeli, quia,”
mean “they [the friars] are not in heaven, since.” The code “gxddbov xxkxzt pg ifmk”
is easily broken by simply substituting the preceding letter in the alphabet, keeping in mind differences in the alphabet and in spelling between then and now: i
was then used for both i
and j; v
was used for both u
was used for w.
This yields “fvccant
[a fake Latin form] vvivys of heli.”
The whole thus reads in translation: “They are not in heaven because they fuck wives of Ely [a town near Cambridge].”
