fuck {{wikipedia}} Alternative forms: (bowdlerizations) f-ck, f**k, the F-word, F-bomb, phuck, etc. etymology unknown, but probably from Middle English *fucken, *fukken, of gmq origin, related to dialectal Norwegian fukka, Swedish fokka (earlier "to fuck; thrust; push", nowadays focka), Swedish fock, and Middle Dutch (and Modern Dutch) fokken. It may go back to the Proto-Indo-European *pug-, *puǵ- "to strike"; source of Latin pūgnus among many others, or to Proto-Indo-European *puḱn- 〈*puḱn-〉, *pewḱ- 〈*pewḱ-〉 "to sting, stick, stab"; compare German ficken. The word may be attested in a 772 charter which mentions a place called Fuccerham, which possibly means “ham of the fucker” or “hamm of the fucker”. The first verifiable use of the word in English writing appears in Flen flyys and freris, a medieval poem (1495–1505) containing the pseudo-Latin form ; it was first listed in a dictionary in 1598.[ Can a Woman “Prong” a Man? Why it’s so hard to put sex in the dictionary], by Jesse Sheidlower, 2009-10-01, {{w|}} The Scots cognate, fuk, fuck, appears in 16th century sources,[*&dregion=form&dtext=dost#fhit Dictionary of the Scots language: Fuk, Fuck], citing {{w|William Dunbar}} and {{w|David Lyndsay}} (Lyndsay’s ''Answer to the Kingis Flyting'' 1536 and ''{{w|Ane Pleasant Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis}},'' 1540), as collected in the ''{{w|Bannatyne Manuscript}}''. the earliest being the 1503 poem “Brash of Wowing” by William Dunbar,Incipit of poem: ‘In secret place this hyndir nycht’ which includes the lines: “Yit be his feirris he wald haif fukkit: / Ye brek my hairt, my bony ane.” A range of folk-etymological backronym has been advanced, such as "fornication under consent of the king" and "for unlawful carnal knowledge", which are all demonstrably false. pronunciation
