In the course of my education I took a course on the history of the English language. Naturally I was interested in how the suffix –burg, as in Fredericksburg, got into English from the German Burg, or castle. Of course, the Angles and the Saxons were German tribes who invaded England. Well, Burg became a burg, or fortified town, as languages change, and now I have my own American town, alias Barbara Fritchie.
I found out that the good monks who copied documents often mistook a g for a y, and so we have Westbury instead of Westburg. We also have Queensboro from Queensborough from Queensburg, and Salisbury from Salisburg.
Let me correct you: we don’t have raspberry from raspburg.
