Another Word For Bathroom

I’m not sure what the original word actually was as most of today’s words are euphemisms or even, as bathroom, a euphemism to avoid a euphemism. I’m a New Zealander of British stock (parents still speak British and I lived there a while). It comes down to : toilet – a euphemism based on a woman’s morning ritual, then applied to the room and now to both the room and the bowl lavatory – means wash room and is a euphemism loo – from the French for l’eau (water) and is essentially a room with water, a euphemism. WC or water closet – a room provided with a water source, then applied to the actual apparatus. bathroom – a room with a bath in the whole world except North America where it now doesn’t need a bath and is used as a euphemism so that Americans don’t have to use another euphemism like toilet or lavatory. restroom/washroom – variations on bathroom heads – a boating term used for waterborne craft and naval land institutions, similar to galley (kitchen), brig (jail or cell), wardroom (dining room) etc. latrines – simple toilet especially in the military, often temporary and little more than a hole with a board above it. Now often used by the Army as a general term. Then you have the more vulgar, of varying vulgarity, terms such as dunny, bog, john, can, and even more vulgar crpper, shthouse etc. It appears that vulgarity begets accuracy.

Another Word For Bathroom

The room used for defecation is almost always referred to by euphemism. Bathroom In Britain this still means a room containing a bath. Lavatory This used to mean no more than a room used for washing. It was identical to washroom. “From Late Latin lavātōrium, from Latin lavāre to wash.” Toilet The word toilet is a euphemism. It previously was used to refer to the early morning routine of preparing for the day by washing, combing hair and applying various potions. So far as I know it did not include defecation and was therefore a perfectly innocuous and polite subject for general conversation. It can be startling to read the word when used in that sense in older books or artworks. A woman at her toilet – Titian. W.C. A euphemism in Britain (and some European countries) was water closet, nowadays abbreviated to W.C. Taken literally it implies no more than a small room provided with a supply of water – nothing offensive there. Popularity The British National Corpus provides these counts toilet 1540 lavatory 546 WC 227 W.C. 13 Progression It seems that euphemisms must be constantly renewed by replacement as they become tainted by association with the taboo subject. This replacement proceeds at different rates in different countries, cultures or social groups. This means that, in time, new words must also be found for the existing meanings of words like convenience.

Another Word For Bathroom

In the US we typically say “bathroom” for the room in our home that contains the toilet. When in public and trying to be polite we ask directions to the “restroom”. Indeed, most signs in restaurants, bars and airports will use the word “Restrooms” to direct people to the toilet. My limited experience in the UK is that everyone is more literal and uses the word “Toilet”. Many years ago in a museum in the UK I asked a guard for directions to the “restroom”. He said “There’s no place here for you to lay down, sir.” I expect he was “taking the piss” which is an entirely different thing.

I’m English, and agree with Robusto that I’ve never heard the phrase St. John’s. Although I have heard the room in question being referred to euphemistically as “The bathroom”, I believe this to be an Americanism. Unless the bath is actually in there, it’s a toilet, or a “loo” in more polite society. In my house the bath is in the same room as the toilet, so the room is referred to in our house as a bathroom, but one were caught short in a public place I would normally expect one to ask “where is the nearest toilet?” as opposed to “where is the nearest bathroom/washroom/restroom?”, although I’m certain their meaning would be understood. I don’t hear many people refer to it as a lavatory any more, although maybe that’s more a reflection on the company I keep. Certainly though some people refer to it as a “Lavvy”, which is just a reduction of lavatory. I certainly haven’t heard anyone in the south of England refer to it as a washroom or restroom, and I personally would not refer to it as such. Again, perhaps this is an American thing?
