Mystic Theme (Break)

by Art Bee February. 09, 2011 4994 views

Breakfast is the first food one eats in the morning, thereby literally ‘breaking’ the night’s ‘fast’. The word is first recorded in a text of 1463: ‘Expenses in breakfast, xjd’. It is a lexicalization of the phrase ‘break one’s fast’, which itself seems to have originated in the 14th century.When I began looking up breakfast words I was sure many would be borrowed from other languages but I was surprised just how many were.
Pure English words are hard to find – the Biblical “milk” and “honey”. But the word “breakfast” is English. It comes from the Old English words “break” and “fast”, the meal where you break the fast of the night.
