I find this is especially true when it comes to those Australian authors. Is there something in the water Down Under?
Dr Quimn, Mad Woman broadcast in There is a lesbian magazine titled Quimand related to the term are the portmanteau words 'queef', 'kweef', 'quiff', and 'queefage', all meaning 'vaginal fart' and derived from 'quim' in combination with 'whiff'.
In addition to the clumsily Anglicised 'quim', 'cwm' was also adopted into English with the more accurate phonetic spelling 'coombe', from the Old English 'cumb'. Indeed, so common is the word in English placenames that Morecambe Bay is often mis-spelt Morecombe: There is also a song titled Biddy Mulligan: In America, 'combe' appears in the name of Buncombe County, from which the slang term 'bunkum' is derived.
Congressional representative Felix Walker, ending a long-winded House of Representatives speech ininsisted that he was "bound to make a speech for Buncombe" Jonathon Green, Thus, 'buncombe' became synonymous with nonsensical speech, and was later simplified to 'bunkum'.
We have seen how 'cu' originated as an ancient feminine term. In the Romance languages, the 'cu' prefix became 'co', as in 'coynte', the Italian 'conno' and 'cunno', the Portugese 'cona', and the Catalan 'cony'. This 'co' prefix may also suggest a possible link with the Old English 'cot', forerunner of 'cottage', and with 'cod' as in 'codpiece''cobweb', 'coop', 'cog', 'cock', 'chicken', 'cudgel', and 'kobold', though this is not proven.
The 'co' prefix is found most abundantly in Spanish, which provides 'concha' 'vagina''chocha' 'lagoon', a vaginal metaphorand 'cono' 'vagina'. Suzi Feay finds 'cono' preferable to the coarser-sounding 'cunt': There is also a Castilian Spanish variant 'conacho'and a milder euphemistic form: In Mexico, Spaniards are known colloquially as 'los conos', indicating Mexican surprise at the word's prevalence in Spain.
The transition from 'cu' to 'co' can be seen most clearly in the progression from the Old French 'cun' and 'cunne', to the Middle French 'com' and 'coun', and the modern French 'con'.
These terms contain the letter 'n', and this is a clue that their evolution from 'cu' was indirect. The missing link is the Latin term 'cuneus', meaning 'wedge'.
Euphemistically, 'coin' means 'conceive', and 'coiner' can refer to a man who impregnates a woman, thus the word has a demonstrably sexual, if not explicitly genital, connection. Thus, 'cuneiform', 'coin', and 'cunt' share the same etymological origin: The connection between 'cuneus' and 'cunt' is 'cunnus' Latin for 'vagina'; perhaps also related to 'culus', meaning 'anus'and this connection is most clearly demonstrated by the term 'cunnilingus' 'oral stimulation of the vagina'.
In this combination of 'cunnus' and 'lingere' 'to lick'we can see that 'cunnus' is used in direct reference to the vagina, demonstrating that the 'cun' prefix it shares with 'cunt' is more than coincidental.Jasper Jones is marginalised in society due to his indigenous background causing him to be the first to be blamed for any matters of trouble.
