To the Victorians they were inexpressibles
(1793), indescribables (1794), etceteras (1794), unmentionables (1823), ineffables(1823), indespensables (1828) innominables (1834-43), inexplicables (1836), and continuations (mid-nineteenth century).
What were they? Perhaps this citation from the OED will help: “Shoes off, ineffables tucked up” (1867). No? What
about this one: “Liston, in a pair of unmentionables coming halfway down his
legs” (1823). Yes, they are trousers, “an article of dress not to be mentioned
in polite circles,” as The Century
Cyclopedia of 1889 cautions. (Ironically, etceteras had in centuries past been a euphemism for words much
more unmentionable than trousers.
From: Holy Sh*t – A Brief History
of Swearing, Melissa Mohr’s fascinating cultural and linguistic history of
the words we use frequently and with such relish. It’s published by Oxford
University Press (2013) and, yes, “Sh*t” is spelled that way on the cover, even
though the even-more verbally sensitive programmers at Microsoft Word will not
permit users to spell “Sh*t” that way in the title of any document created
using its precious code. Darn. (See
† For the background to John Marston’s use of this phrase to describe
certain ineffable-free activities of Pygmalian and Galatea, see p. 145, if
you _______ dare. Strangely, “Pyg-” has
been transformed to “Pig-” in this work. Although Marston uses “Pygmalian” in
his original, OUP’s editors seem to fear it might be another rude word and have
imposed “Pigmalian” instead. Amphibology!
