Question of the Week
The word "nerd" is a fairly recent addition to the English language and is now quite common in everyday speech.
When and where was the first recorded usage of the word?
(Hint: Today is Dr. Seuss's birthday...)
Dr. Seuss holds the honor of first printed usage of the word "nerd." It appeared in the book
If I Ran the Zoo
, written in 1950.
