Where does ion come from?
The great British scientist Michael Faraday discovered ions in 1834. By the loss or gain of electrons, atomic or molecular ions carry a positive or negative charge, which attracts them to oppositely charge particles to form various chemicals. The word is rooted in the Greek for “going” due to the movement of this attraction.
Perhaps there are some of you who read the above paragraph and said Ion know what that means. This ion means “I don’t.” It is a spelling based on the colloquial pronunciation of I don’t, especially in Black English. Try this: say “I don’t know” fast and casually. You’re probably saying something that actually sounds like ion–oh. This is actually how we talk, people.
