Pharoah

Postby William Hupy » Sun Apr 30, 2017 9:14 am

Today I read an editorial that described the current occupant of The White House's quest for a southern wall as pharaonic and moronic. This is probably one of few words to sneak into English from Egyptian, but indirectly.

pharaoh
title of the kings of ancient Egypt, Old English Pharon, from Latin Pharaonem, from Greek Pharao, from Hebrew Par'oh, from Egyptian Pero', literally "great house."
