Many English ideas flow from the word apple. It is associated with science, good health and education. It has a long history of being used as a symbol in literature.|
In the bible, Eve is said to have eaten the forbidden fruit.
William Tell is said to have shot an apple off his son's head.
In American culture there was a man who went around planting apple seeds.
His name was Johnny Apple Seed.
The apple has always been associated with good nutrition and we have the following expression:
"An apple a day keeps the doctor away."
If a student wanted to be good to a teacher, this is in older times, they would bring an apple for the teacher.
So an apple is associated with education
Science has been connected to the apple because Sir Issac Newton was said to have
thought about the "law of gravity" after an apple hit him on the head.
And the Apple gets top billing in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a symbol of enticement.
And Galina to top it all off us English speaking people always want to use "apple" to represent the first letter of the alphabet.
So, this ends my lesson on the word
