Sources of word YAHOO

Posted by Richard Stoney on September 22, 2002 at

It is my contention that YAHOO, which first appeared in Gulliver's Travels, actual came from various foreign words which looked like YAHOO [YAHU; JAHU (Estonian); YA-HU (Chinese); Russian YHO-; and old Greek LETHOS--figure that one out!!!]
