Language evolves. The meaning of a word can shift over time as we use it differently. Think of words like cool, heavy, or even literally.
Today, give a word an evolutionary push: give a common word a new meaning, explain it to us, and use it in the title of your post.
Many American English words are derivatives of Latin, French, and Germanic languages, evolving with numerous definition and meanings.
The etymology and meaning of the word “Cat,” describes a four-legged domestic feline with retractable claws. The term has evolved to encompass many other meanings and phrases.
My father loved the blues and jazz, and he occasionally used the phrase “Cool-Cats” to identify someone, groups of people and me.
Replacing with the letter “C” with the letter “K,” identifies an evergreen shrub, native to Arabia and Africa, used as a narcotic when chewed or boiled into a beverage called Kat pronounced the same as a cat.
A famous Broadway play is called “Cats,” and using the word cat in an internet search, results in an overabundance of cute cat videos.
One day in the future, there is a possibility the phrases “cat-dog” may be utilized to identify the cross breeding of a cat and a dog.
Although, I cannot imagine this happening naturally because a cat has nine lives. 🙂
