This morning a local program on words noted that the earliest evidence
for mayo (=mayonnaise) is from 1960. This no doubt is from Wentworth &
Flexner. I've looked about a bit and the only suggestion of earlier
evidence is from W&F where they say "common since 1930." Surely it
must be earlier than 1960.
Are there some lunch-counter slang lists?
