Hi this is Tutor Nick P this is Word Origin 72. The word origin today is good
riddance. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone says good riddance
or good riddance to somebody, basically he or she is
expressing that one is very happy or pleased that someone unpleasant is gone.
Like good riddance to them. Finally. Over. He's out of here or something bad or
offensive or annoying is finally over. Yeah. Good riddance to that. It's about
time it's gone. So let's continue. It has the feeling that the situation will be
better with that person or thing gone. So without them ,it should be better. So good
riddance to them. Goodbye. So long. Let's continue. The origin is
believed to come directly from a Shakespeare play "Troilus and Cressida. "
in 1606. Shakespeare is credited with coining the term. So they think that he
created it actually. However at the time you know, when he was alive in his time.
There were some other adjectives connected with riddance. Now remember
rid even today like we get rid of something when we are throwing it away or it's
gone. So, so I guess it was a way of like saying goodbye back then to like a
riddance to someone. They're, they're going away. They're leaving riddance. With riddance
in such as fair and they spelled it F-A- Y-R-E. Today of course it's F-A-I-R. Fair
happy or gentle etc. riddance basically. Now all those others have kind of
disappeared. We don't really say happy riddance or fair riddance or gentle
riddance anymore. However here in an earlier Shakespeare play "The Merchant of
Venice" the character Portia wishes the Prince of Morocco a gentle riddance . Like
when he's going or something like that. So even Shakespeare himself had used
riddance in a different way a little bit earlier.
Anyway, so we got three examples of how we use this today. All right. Here's example number
one. Good riddance. Thank God that politician is finally out
of office. Yeah. So if somebody didn't like a particular one and they had to
wait a long time you know, four years eight years whatever. Now they're finally
happy. Gone now we got somebody else you know more to my liking.
And we're saying good riddance to that person. Or number two here. Good riddance
to that CEO. You know, maybe it's a company you are invested in too. Maybe they
lost a lot of money during the time he was there. He nearly bankrupted the
company. Yeah Good riddance. I mean hopefully the next guy will do better or
number three here. I finally got rid of my old car it was costing me a fortune
in repairs. Good riddance to it. Like goodbye and so long. Sayonara.
Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
