Lizard of the Indies

By Debra Dobbins

This headline goes with a cute story today on 7A about an alligator with back pain.

“Alligator” came into English in the 1560s, according to the Online Etymology Dictionary. It is “a corruption of Spanish el lagarto (de Indias) ‘the lizard (of the Indies),’ from Latin lacertus.”
