English - Etymology

* _hook_ (“(verb)”) +‎ _-er_ * The "prostitute" sense is the subject of a folk etymology connecting it to US Civil War general General Hooker, but the earliest known use dates to 1835. More plausibly, it has also been connected to coastal features called _Hook_ in the ports of New York and Baltimore. Careful learned inference is not conclusive. See this essay, pp 105ff.
