    By popular demand (well 1 person asked) heres some random facts about the word cunt from an old piece of coursework on the word cunt.. I like trivia!

    So heres some random facts (which to the best of my knowledge are true, hey! ... it was a A-level piece, I keep getting told standards have dropped and my state education was worthless so its not my fault if its a lie!):

    In Czech its 'kunda'

    In Russian its 'kunka'

    Ancient Hittites - 'kun'

    Romans - 'cunnus'

    Swedish - 'kuntte'

    'Cu' is one of the oldest sounds in Proto-Indo-European language, generally used in reference to femininity. Previously dismissed as Anglo Saxon slang.

    The earliest recorded use was 'Groppecunte Lane' from 1230. It was known for the ladies of the nights that occupied there. 'Love lane', 'Fondle lane', and 'Puppekirky St' (Poke Skirt St) all existed around the same time. A 'Grope Lane' still exists in Shrewbury (Been there!) but most other Grope lanes were changed to Grape St or Lane in the 1700s to be more polite and not offend poor ladies sensibilities.

    The first literacy example was used by William Dunbar in the 15th C. He used 'Cuntbitten' to mean afflicted by VD.

    The great author Chaucer used 'queyntes' in some of his work. It was a pun on quaint and cunt.

    By Shakeys time cunt had fell out of favour. He did make a joke about it however by refering to 'country matters' in reference to a ladies lap.

    The english word bunny is derived from the french for 'conny' for a rabbit. This was phased out however as it was too similar to the french for cunt. The Spanish didn't bother and villages still exist with the spanish for cunt as the root word is used in the name of them.

    Its also possible Count was replaced by Earl in England in 1066 by the French. It was quite easy to confuse an invading cunt and an invading count at the time.

    The 1960s marked a turning point because the obscenity trial over D H Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover over the use of the word cunt brought the word into discussion.

    OOOoo and in Norway the word for wife 'Kone' is derived from their version of cunt..

    Cannot remember exactly but the Welsh for fertile valley is related to the 'Cu' sound... I think...

    I might post more as I find more info...
