Word of the Week: Part 3 📖🔍

Word: Whippersnapper 😎✌

Have you ever heard, read, or used the word “whippersnapper”? Nowadays, it is extremely rare to hear this word during conversations, especially amongst children, teens or young adults. Do you know what this word means?

According to Oxford Dictionary, the definition of whippersnapper is:

“a young and unimportant person who behaves in a way that others think is too confident and rude.”

Whippersnapper (originally the hyphenate whipper-snapper) is a rather archaic term for a young, cheeky, presemptuous person. 🚶🏃

Whippersnapper was originally from United Kingdom and was often used in the 17th century. It is pejoratively refers to young, loud, brash boys. One theory is that it comes from the fact that newly made whips (made from “young”, fresh leather) create a very loud, crisp snap. It was also a term used for someone noisy and unimportant. 👦💬🔊

Whippersnapper is derived from the habit of young layabouts who hung around snapping whips to past the time. It is usually applied by elders (e.g. grandparents) to people who are regarded as “upstart” children or young adults. 👴👵➡👦👧
