    I SURE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THE WORD MOOT HAS TO DO WITH AN HISTORICAL MEETING

  2. admin Says:

    No problem. The “moot” was a meeting of the regional elders in old anglo-saxon society — basically an old English town-hall meeting. This is the origin of the modern phrases “moot point” (worthy of discussion at a moot) and “moot court” (a non-binding simulated court case, which discusses hypothetical points of law).

    Please put the DATE and PUZZLE NUMBER on the printouts of the puzzles, so a solver can refer back to them. I need to write them down on my printouts now, if I want to look up any answers I couldn’t get. Thank you.

    I know my reply was not to the “moot” question. I’ve always understood the word to mean a subject was not debatable because we’d never know the deciding factors behind an issue. A “moot court” is one where law students can practice their courtroom skills, without affecting any real case. A “moot point” is similar, in that a debate will not shed any light on a situation, because essential information can’t be known. (Some people seem to think the word is “mute” with an odd pronunciation. That is completely wrong).
