The origins of "dico"
Can anyone cast some light for me on the origins of the word "dico"
used for "dictionary"? Is it used just by ESL speakers? Why does it
sound so strange to me (no psychoanalysis, please)? Is it a French
- Spelt 'dicko', it's an autoreflective extended sublimation of the word
'dickhead', appropriate to those who use it.
Unfortunately, can't (yet) blame Johnny Crapaud for it, but give me time....
