Meaning of antec sohigh

Meaning of fuck, fucking

fuck, fucking means: Originally denoted the act of sexual intercourse but over the years has become associated with vulgarity. Note: We had a query asking if "fuck" was an acronym for "Fornication under Consent of the King" on the basis of the old "first fruits" stories (ed: anyone remember the real term for that??). The idea being this ancient anglo-saxon word originated in 'ancient England' when permission had to be granted for couples to conceive a child? The questioner read that a placard had to be hung on the door of the wedded pair formally acknowledging that permission had been sought and granted from the reigning monarch....! Another suggestion has been that this word came from the term "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge". People who practised carnal knowledge were caught out on convict ships where the practise was illegal. Both sound plausible - but unfortunately incorrect. According to Partridge (always the author of choice) the word actually has traceable roots in ancient Egyptian, with borrowings from a pre Anglo-Saxon, and possible pre Celtic language. But in any case, the word has been in general use for such a long time, it's true origins are now well shielded by the mists of time.
