Más
  • The original English word for curds was crud, which only acquired its sense ‘filth, rubbish’ in the USA in the 1940s. The swapping round of sounds in a word is called metathesis and is particularly common with ‘r’ and a vowel ( compare bird). Since the late 16th century curdle has been used for the action of forming curds.
