Word Origin & History

chop
"to cut," mid-14c., perhaps from O.Fr. (Picard) choper, from O.Fr. coper "to cut off," from V.L. *cuppare "to decapitate," infl. by couper "to strike." Meaning "slice of meat" is c.1640; hence, chop-house (1680s).

chop
"shift," O.E. ceapian "to bargain" (see cheap), here with a sense of "changing back and forth."
