How did the word FUCK get invented?

Recommended Posts

It was in England like about the year 1100 or so,back when the king controlled EVERYTHING in daily life. If a married couple wanted wanted to have  sexual intercourse  they had to get permission from the king. If they were approved they got a document called " Fornication Under Consent of King" so people used the letters of the document's title,and FUCK was born.    NOW YOU KNOW!

That would be Henry I in the United Kingdom (who was known to have a rather too muck of a liking for lamphreys that was perhaps best for him). However, as with most things online, I am afraid to state that this is "FALSE" as defined by Snopes.com who state "[Fuck] is a very old word, recorded in English since the 15th century (few acronyms predate the 20th century), with cognates in other Germanic languages. The Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang (Random House, 1994, ISBN 0-394-54427-7) cites Middle Dutch fokken = “to thrust, copulate with”; Norwegian dialect fukka = “to copulate”; and Swedish dialect focka = “to strike, push, copulate” and fock = “penis”. Although German ficken may enter the picture somehow, it is problematic in having e-grade, or umlaut, where all the others have o-grade or zero-grade of the vowel" so if anyone is responsible for it's invention it was the German monachs
