    /ˈkwəz/ /ˈkwɪz/


    [ 'kwiz ] (noun.) 1749. The true etymology is unknown. The following have all been proposed: * Reputed without evidence to have been invented by a late 18th century Dublin theatre proprietor who bet he could add a new nonsense word to the English language. He thus had the word painted on walls all over the city. The morning after, everyone was talking about the new word. * The original meaning is interrogation (1867), being derived from the verb. Current meaning only since 1941. * The meaning "hoax" is the original (1796), shifting to the meaning "interrogate" (1847) under the influence of to question and inquisitive. * Originally quies (1847), may have derived from Latin qui es? (who are you?), traditionally the first question in oral Latin exams. Used as a noun from 1867, spelling quiz first recorded in 1886.
