விவரங்கெட்ட கேள்விகளும் முறையான பதில்களும்:
What is the origin of the phrase SCOT free - why not Irish free or Welsh free, for example?
In this context 'scot' has nothing to do with nationality. It derives from the old word 'scot' meaning tax, payment or reckoning. Thus to go scot-free means to go without payment or penalty.

Why do we park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?
The words 'drive' and 'park' existed long before automobiles were ever invented. These are not words created to describe the actions of your car, but rather words which already had meanings and were adapted to describe a new innovation. Since people don't park on parkways, isn't it likely that some other meaning of the word park (i.e. place of recreation) is the root of the word?
