Random information on the term ““Hey there sailor!””:
E (named e /iː/, plural ees) is the fifth letter and the second vowel in the modern English alphabet and the ISO basic Latin alphabet. It is the most commonly used letter in many languages, including Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Latin, Latvian, Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish.
The Latin letter ‘E’ differs little from its source, the Greek letter epsilon, ‘Ε’. This in turn comes from the Semitic letter hê, which has been suggested to have started as a praying or calling human figure (hillul ‘jubilation’), and was probably based on a similar Egyptian hieroglyph that indicated a different pronunciation. In Semitic, the letter represented /h/ (and /e/ in foreign words); in Greek, hê became the letter epsilon, used to represent /e/. The various forms of the Old Italic script and the Latin alphabet followed this usage.
Although Middle English spelling used ⟨e⟩ to represent long and short /e/, the Great Vowel Shift changed long /eː/ (as in ‘me’ or ‘bee’) to /iː/ while short /ɛ/ (as in ‘met’ or ‘bed’) remained a mid vowel. In other cases, the letter is silent, generally at the end of words.
Random information on the term “Ahoy”:
Ahoy (/əˈhɔɪ/) (listen (help·info)) is a signal word used to call to a ship or boat, stemming from the Middle English cry, ‘Hoy!’. The word had fallen into obsolescence before rising from obscurity as the sport of sailing rose in popularity. ‘Ahoy’ can also be used as a greeting, a warning, or a farewell.
The word can be found with similar pronunciation and writing in several other languages. In Indonesian, another greeting Ahiy is also used besides Ahoy. In Czech and Slovak also, ahoj is a common, colloquial greeting, while ‘Hoi’ is used in Modern Dutch and Swiss German, and ‘oi’ in Modern Portuguese, as an informal greeting equivalent to the English ‘hi’ or ‘hey’. ‘Ohøj’ is used in Danish almost identically to the aforementioned usages. It stems from the sea-faring world, used as an interjection to catch the attention of other crew members, and as a general greeting. It can sometimes also be found on land spoken as a general greeting, again, especially in a maritime context.
