In West Virginia, one of the first female coal miners in the country sued the owner of the mine to get him to stop stalking her.
“I think people want to know why this happened,” said Tom Elliott, owner of the Venice Ale House on Ocean Front Walk.
Doug Chrismas, owner of Ace Gallery, had realized what curators had missed.
"The owner is a friend of ours," said Leann Brown, who came out with her husband, Curtis, and several others.
Question 9: If the female captive was impregnated by her owner, can he then sell her?
She is sold for no fault, but simply because her owner must have money.
"You are trifling, Smithson," the owner of the store exclaimed, in high exasperation.
Mr Blanquette is as much the owner of the horse as yourself.
Mary regarded the owner of the store with grave questioning in her violet eyes.
"Malone," prompted the owner of the name, without resentment.
Old English agen "one's own," literally "possessed by," from Proto-Germanic *aigana- "possessed, owned" (cf. Old Saxon egan, Old Frisian egin, Old Norse eiginn, Dutch eigen, German eigen "own"), from past participle of PIE *aik- "to be master of, possess," source of Old English agan "to have" (see owe).
evolved in early Middle English from Old English geagnian, from root agan "to have, to own" (see owe), and in part from the adjective own (q.v.). It became obsolete after c.1300, but was revived early 17c., in part as a back-formation of owner (mid-14c.), which continued. Related: Owned; owning. To own up "make full confession" is from 1853.
