Aug 20, 2008 | It’s all about the order

In the perennial question of

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?,

no one asks

Which came first, the egg or the chicken?

Unfortunately, from a linguistic standpoint you can’t argue that because of the order of words, the chicken comes first, because that would only be valid if we were to ask “which comes first”, which abstracts from the inquiry about the past.

Have you ever said “wife and husband”?
