If we look at the background of this word, then we hear bizarre stories such as:
- War was the usual way during the ancient days. When any army reports about the death of their soldiers and if none of them die, they report it as 0 killed. Thus this zero hit (0 hit) changed to a positive word OK which means everything is fine.
- The phrase comes from “Okie-Dokie”, which actually came into existence from the English “Okie”.
- Greek immigrants used the term, who returned to America and pronounced “Okay Boys”.
- The term was first used as a slogan during the presidential campaign of Martin Van Buren (1782–1862) in 1840. Martin Van Buren was nicknamed “Old Kinderhook”. Which was eventually shortened to OK. A group of his followers called themselves “O.K. Club “.
