Social Housing: Another Original Etymological Find Unearthed with Google

Sep. 5, 2016 7:54 am

In answer to my colleague Roger Hopkins Burke's request today about the earliest known use of the term "social housing". We can now know that the first known published use of the term "social housing" dates back at least as far as 1913.

Once again the Internet Date Detection (IDD) method beats the etymological experts in the Oxford English Dictionary (OED). This time by 15 years on the earliest, to date (5th September 2016), discovered use of the term "social housing".

The OED (5th September 2016) has it: "1928 Ann. Amer. Acad. Polit. & Social Sci. 140 291 Outstanding social housing experiments are the Schmidlapp houses in Cincinnati, [etc.]."

The ID method (see my book Nullius for an easy step by step guide on how to use the method with Google Chrome) gets back as far as 1913: To The Forerunner vol Iv No 12. December 1913: On Google here and verified on Hathi Trust -Here.

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
