/Check/ as in ‘pattern of squares’ (14th c.)

/cHeck(mate)/ as in ‘unparalleled take-over’ (20th c.) (Folabomi 2016)

I find this term really intriguing because in my head it is a spectacular mix of Old French, Persian, German, Spanish, Latin, Dutch, Pidgin and Arabic. Yes? Yes?? You agree, yes?! Me too!!

cHeck(mate) has become such a universal term, even the Eskimos thought to adopt it when they finally discovered heat… 😂😂

… The brilliant game of Chess developed very implicit applications of the word, ‘attack!’, ‘arrest!’, ‘stop!’. Shāh māt, in english cHeckmate, meaning ‘the king is left helpless’.
