WHY DO YOU CALL IT "ENGINE"
When Chaucer wrote, "He passed
them all for deep engine and made
them all to gaze upon the books he
made," it wasn't a steam engine he
referred to, as in the days of "The
Canterbury Tales" the word engine
still retained its original meaning
talent or genius. In the course of
time, however, any mechanical device
invented by a person of talent or
"engine" was called engine. Gradu
ally the word lost its significance as
a synonym for talent, and engine to
day popularly means -a-sf earn engine.
