I typed "Golyat" and "glycose". I know too much about the etymology of words. It's weird how every other word related to glucose starts with "gly".
+1
Level 81
Jan 8, 2022
I´d say it´s rather weird how glucose is the word that doesn´t have the y. The greek letter it derives from is a "i" or "y" sound, definitely not "u".

The letter upsilon in Ancient Greek made a sound similar to 'u'.

The quiz probably used 'jock' to insinuate that it was the American name, to make it more clear.

Not a native speaker, but I listened to New York-based artist "Wheatus" and their song "Teenage Dirtbag", which features a "gym class in half an hour", so I figured it was a class name in America as well. :D

Not to mention Gym Class Heroes, who are also American!

Who is Jock, and why should I know what his favourite class is? Is this meant to be some kind of Scottish joke? Because I'm Scottish and I don't get it

I'd also like to know that. I thought it might be a short form for "Jockey" and class would mean some type of riding contest...

In the USA & Canada, "jock" is a term roughly synonymous with "athlete" or someone primarily interested in sports/physical activity. It could be construed as the opposite of a nerd, and might be used in a derogatory fashion. See the Wikipedia article for more info.

I was about to ask what jock had to do with being Scottish, but from the article I see the term has that connotation in England & Wales.
