Homework Help: English

Posted by Brandon on Thursday, April 12, 2007 at 11:37pm.

I'm sorry, I just need a subject suggestion for an English Essay. It's a definition essay for my college English 1A class. The topic is, "A word which has changed in meaning and what the change shows about society."

I am not asking for you to tell me what it shows about society, I can write that part. But I would love if I could have some examples of words that have changed in meaning. An example given in class was, "Gay" since it use to mean happy but now can be homosexual or also used as slang for "bad."

Thank you very much if I can get any examples

How about 'organic'

Or how about "oversight" -- it used to mean a mistake (overlooking something); now it means supervisory (overseeing something).

=)

How about "mouse?"
