Doctor is Dock yards? Wouldn’t be surprised.

Came across the word ‘dock-yards’ while reading the constitution of The United States of America. Couldn’t help but see the similar alliteration with the word ‘doctor’. Wouldn’t be surprised if this is the word the legal society ‘hears’ at their ‘hearings’.

To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;

The people behind the series Red Right & Blue had mentioned this. As others have.

The legal society and I guess the maritime Phoenicians have made our language all about the sea. Hard to believe we use the word ‘township’ instead of ‘town’.

The word ‘doctor’ has four non-health definitions before finally mentioning the healing arts.

  1. a. Christianity : an eminent theologian declared a sound expounder of doctrine by the Roman Catholic Church
    called also doctor of the church
    b. a learned or authoritative teacher
    etc.

Whereas, with the word ‘physician’, the very first definition is about the art of healing.

Let’s use the word physician. And stay out of ‘delivery rooms’ with ‘dock-yards’.

The word ‘dockyard‘ is a shipyard, which means a ‘a yard, place, or enclosure where ships are built or repaired.’

  1. Have thou ever gone to the doctor’s “office”? Across the pond, as they say, the doc’s place is called a “practice”.

    1. Me knows the phrase ‘practice medicine’. But me does not see how it applies here. Please explain further.
