Background / Comments
As I wrote yesterday, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this word. The reference material I looked at were not certain of the origin; it is thought that our word may be related to bourgeois, because this term was used in political rhetoric. It could also be a “cleaned up” version of a vulgar word.
