Why do we use the word oops in a sentence or when communicating with others, if something goes wrong?
I would like to know the correct information regarding this question.
The most convincing etymology I've heard for this informal word signaling a mistake is an alteration of upsy-daisy. Upsy-daisy was a word of reassurance, often used when a child was panicked or distressed. For example, if a child fell and hurt their leg, a nanny could pick them up and say, "upsy-daisy." I feel that the context in which the word was typically used is as much a part of the etymology as the similar sounds. If you're saying "oops," you'll likely be needing some reassurance since you've made a mistake.
Regardless of the history of the word, it's a word denoting acknowledgment of a mistake, accident.
Synonyms: uh-oh, whoops.
Oops, forgot to cite some sources ;)
oops- "a natural exclamation" [OED] of surprise at doing something awkward, but attested only from 1933 (cf. whoops)
where whoops is from 1925, which is from where I would think oops evolved.
