Thanks for pointing out the similar question. Great, but note that I'm trying to find ...
• is there any SPECIFIC examples/evidence around of yword yusage TODAY?
• other than jokey usage, is there any fresh and real usage?
• nobody has explained, simply what period was it popular? (if at all - or was it just an artifact or something?)
• and indeed, what ywere the Top Three Yword greatest hits?
I made an ybounden the other day,
and it brought to mind the questions:
These days, are there any words which use the y- prefix?
What is the origin of this prefix?
In what period was it popular?
What were, at that time, other popular words with the y- prefix?
Is it perhaps today still popular in other (European?) languages - which?
Is the whole thing just a typo/artifact? What's the deal?
But mostly ........ are there any ywords popular today?
