  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word Origins 31. The word origin today is

  • sandwich. You know the simple sandwich that we eat all the time. All right. Let's

  • take a look at the note here. The origin of the word sandwich comes from the 4th

  • Earl of Sandwich. So he was actually an earl and the place that he was an earl

  • of was actually named sandwich. So this is what ends up leading to it. John

  • Montagu. So his name was John Montagu. So his name wasn't actually sandwich. His

  • name was John Montagu, but he was the Earl of Sandwich. Okay. He was an aristocrat.

  • You know especially in former times. Somebody from the elite class. Possibly

  • somebody from nobility. He probably was from nobility because he was an earl.

  • Usually they have titles like that. During the 18th century and he used to

  • like to play card games. You know, probably gambling , gambling card games.

  • You know , like a lot of aristocrats used to like to do that in former times. He

  • used to ask his valet to bring him beef between two slices of bread. So you know,

  • basically type of servant. He preferred to eat this meal while playing cards. Okay.

  • The bread kept his hands from getting greasy. So that was around the time

  • where you know you might have eaten meat just directly with your hands. So of

  • course, he liked it between two slices of bread, so his hands could stay clean

  • while he was playing cards So this is where it came from.

  • He didn't want to get grease on the cards. Well. That's the main thing

  • because of course if he if he got grease on his hands grease would have been on

  • the cards and probably you know whoever he was playing cards with wouldn't like

  • that. That's a way that to sometimes mark cards too. If you put spots on them. So

  • that wouldn't have been good. So he didn't do that. He used the bread , so that his

  • hands could stay clean. Okay. Good. All right. Let's continue. All right. Yeah. His

  • friends who he played car with began asking for the meal. They thought that

  • looks good. That's a good idea. You know, why not ? I think I'll try the same thing.

  • That happens sometimes. Even in our modern times. They would say we will have

  • the same sandwich. Maybe they referred to him as sandwich because he was the Earl

  • of Sandwich. This caught on you know, to catch on means

  • to become very popular and eventually led to the creation of the word sandwich.

  • So this is really where it came from. It came from this aristocrat. You know , in

  • the 18th century that liked to play card games and he only did this to keep his

  • hands clean, so we wouldn't get a lot of grease on his hands. Anyway I hope you

  • got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
