Nest

 

Nest is a word notable for its age and specific meaning. All of the etymological sources I checked agree that this word has been with us since Indo-European and moreover that it evolved from a combination of words back then that make perfect sense.

 

The Indo-European word is thought to have been nizdos. This breaks into ni and sed, also Indo-European words that meant respectively “down” and “sit”. So the literal meaning of the word nest, running back five thousand years or more is “the place where the bird sits down.”

 

The strongest connections between Indo-European and Modern English seem to be via Old English and Germanic, so it’s thought that this word was already in use in the British Isles before French or Latin brought their versions from the same root.

 

The oldest examples we have of the word in English appeared in the Lindisfame Gospels, that very beautiful old document first written in Latin in the 600s or so, only a couple of centuries after those Anglo-Saxons had arrived in England.

 

The passage from the Lindisfame Gospel that mentions the word is from Mathew and what we would now read as “the foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the son of man have not where to lay his head.”

 

We have extended the word nest to apply to lots of nest-like things but many of these have their own names. A wasp’s nest is called a vespiary and a bee’s nest was called a bike for centuries. A squirrel’s nest is a dray and a salmon cleans out a place in the gravel of a riverbed to lay its eggs and this is called a redd.

 

The food company Nestle has a logo with a momma bird and two baby birds sitting  on a nest on a branch. The light went on for me as I was writing this episode as to why they would have this symbol as a logo, nest, Nestle.

 

In the days when chickens laid eggs in straw instead of wire cages, farmers placed fake eggs in the man-made nests to show the chickens where they should put their real eggs. This is the origin of the phrase nest-egg. If you put a relatively small amount of money aside for a rainy day, it’s called a nest-egg because it’s supposed to encourage add more to it as time goes on.

 

I see a quote here from David Lloyd George when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer – that is he was in charge of the budget of England. It’s a job he got almost exactly 100 years ago and the quote shows that not too much has changed as far as government financing is concerned. He said quote “I have no nest-egg. I am looking for someone else’s hen-roost to rob next year.”

Nest Nest is a word notable for its age and specific meaning. All of the etymological sources I checked agree that this word has been with us since Indo-European and moreover that it evolved from a combination of words back then that make perfect sense. The Indo-European word is thought to have been nizdos. This breads into ni and sed, also in european words, that mentioned respectatly down and sit, so the literal meaning of the word nest, running back 5,000 more years, the place where the bird sits down. The strongest connection between Indo-European and Modern English seems to be via Old English and Germanic, so it’s thought that this word was already in use in the British Isles before French or Latin brought their versions from the same root. The oldest example we have of the word in English appeared in the Lindisfame Gospels, the very beautiful old document first written in Latin in the 600s or so, only a couple of centuries after those Anglo-Saxons had arrived in England. The passage in the Lindisfame Gospel that mentions the word is from Mathew and what we were known is the foxes have holes, and the birds in the air have nests, but the sum of men have not, or delay his head. We extanded the root nest to apply to lots nest like things, that many of these have their own names. A wolf’s nest is called vespuly. And a bee’s nest has called a bike for centuries. A swallow’s nest is a dray. And a sellman *** a place to grable ** place their eggs and this is called a red. The food company Nestle has a logo with a momma bird and two baby birds sitting in a nest on a branch. The light went on for me as I was writing this episode as to why they would have this symbol as a logo, nest, Nestle. In the days when chickens lay eggs in a staw instead a ** cages. Farms place fake eggs into a manmade nest to show the chickens where they should put their real eggs. This is the origine of the phrase nest egg. If you put a very small money on a ice raining day it is called nest day. Because it is supposed encourage more do it as time goes on. I see a quote here from David Lloyd George when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer – that is he was in charge of the budget of England. It’s a job he got almost exactly 100 years ago and the quote shows that not too much has changed as far as government financing is concerned. He said quote “I have no nest-eggs. I am looking for someone else’s hen-roost to rob next year.”
