“who ruined english – brits or yanks?”

An amazing post, that got me to think.
Would love to know the origins of many words; just because a small part in the post he said and i quote:
“Should we abandon “nice” because its root means “wanton” or “dissolute”? Will you stop eating stew when you find out “stew” used to be a synonym for “whorehouse”? What about pasta puttanesca (Italian, short for alla puttanesca, “in the style of a prostitute”)?”

Makes you think! Doesn’t it?
