Rmn...a what da of th .ya
The now famous "okeh," Presiden
Wilsoh's word of approval which it
good usage is certain to supercede the
nonsensical form "O. K.," has create<
almost as much discussion as the sub
ject of the split infinitive. It is of in'
terest to find that the Century Diction
ary apparently slipped a cog in the
spelling of the word-the correct form
of which is "oke, " not "okah"-and
that there is a second error in spelling
in the dictionary's citation from Hying
ton's Grammar of the Choctaw lan
guage of the form of "yai okeh,"
meaning "Thanks to you." The gram
mar actually reads ''yak okeh."
The form "oke" (meaning "it is") is
to be found on page 483 of the English
Choctaw section of the oflicial "Die
tionary of the Choctaw Language."
edited in 1915 by the United States Na
tional Museum, SmiIthsonian Institution,
bureau of American ethnology. "Okeh"
does not appear.
Aplare'ntly the first tracing ot' "O.
K." to the ('hoetaw banguage appeared
in the Septerm ber, I . nutmber of the
Century M . azinc, which is published
by the elito rs of the ('enturv )ictiona
ry. In the article in tha: number it
wa.; suggestedl that ' ). l." had its
origin in the Choctaw "ke. "
lRegardless. however, of whether the
apelling of the word with the final "h"
is a dictionary slip. the tact remains
that for all practical purposes 'okeh"
is the ideal form, as it easily lends itself
to the spellings "okehed 'and "okeh
ing." which would not be the case if
the form "oke" were used. The Gov
ernment Style Book now prescribes the
forms ". K..'' "'O. K'd' and "O.
K'ing." Why should not the govern
ment follow the sensible lead of the
resident and adopt the form "okeh,"
"okehed" and "okehing,"
