4Strip (sugar canes) of their outer leaves to ripen them faster.


Late Middle English: of unknown origin. The verb is first recorded (mid 18th century) in sense 4 of the verb; the other senses have arisen in the 20th century.

  • Popular culture is often called trashy (early 17th century), and this goes right back to the beginnings of trash's history—one of the first things that the word referred to was bad literature. It was originally a word for various kinds of refuse, including cuttings from a hedge, and domestic refuse became trash at the beginning of the 20th century. People have called others trash since the early 17th century—Shakespeare wrote in Othello ‘I do suspect this trash / To be a party in this injury’; and in the USA white trash (mid 19th century) is a derogatory term for poor white people living in the southern states. The verb is first recorded in the mid 18th century in the sense ‘strip (sugar canes) of their outer leaves to encourage faster ripening’; the other senses (‘vandalize’, ‘impair the quality of something’) date from the 20th century.
