Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word Origins 65. The word origin today is nest
egg. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone has or is saving a nest
egg, he or she is putting away a sum of money for the future. Yeah.
We always say that you're putting it away or building it up or saving up. So
we can often use verb phrases like that with a nest egg. All right. So let's
continue here. The origin of this term comes from the actual practice of
farmers putting fake or sometimes real eggs into the nest of hens to encourage
them to lay more eggs. Apparently it works. Farmers have been doing it since
at least the 14th century. Okay. The use related to money has been around since
the 1600s. So a little later. Of course, the idea is that if the hens could lay
more eggs, the farmers could make more money you know, and in turn if they make
more money they'll be able to save more money. They'll be able to build up their
savings. So they can build up a nest egg. That's the idea. That's where it came
from. All right. Good. And we just have two
examples here. Example number one. Jenny has been putting away a nest egg for
over a decade in preparation for her retirement. So she wants to save up the
all this money. So she has some extra money when she retires. Good. And number two . I
started to build up a nest egg for a college fund for my children. So some
people do this. If their children are very young , maybe they'll start putting
away money years ahead, because they in anticipation knowing that a you know
college is going to be expensive. Okay. Anyway. Now I hope you got it. I hope it
was clear. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
