Weird Word: Queue

Interesting – such a strangely-spelled word, but it makes sense when you know the origin.  The English noun queue comes from Middle French queu, quewe, queuue, cueue (with many other variant spellings) and Old French cue or coe “tail,”.  All of a sudden it is not so strange! 

Understanding language is a passion of ours, and we know how to mold it to say what you need it to say!  http://www.greentreecommunications.ca
