  Yankee \Yan"kee\, n. [Commonly considered to be a corrupt
     pronunciation of the word English, or of the French word
     Anglais, by the native Indians of America. According to
     Thierry, a corruption of Jankin, a diminutive of John, and a
     nickname given to the English colonists of Connecticut by the
     Dutch settlers of New York. Dr. W. Gordon ("Hist. of the
     Amer. War," ed, 1789, vol. i., pp. 324, 325) says it was a
     favorite cant word in Cambridge, Mass., as early as 1713, and
     that it meant excellent; as, a yankee good horse, yankee good
     cider, etc. Cf. Scot yankie a sharp, clever, and rather bold
     woman, and Prov. E. bow-yankees a kind of leggins worn by
     agricultural laborers.]
     A nickname for a native or citizen of New England, especially
     one descended from old New England stock; by extension, an
     inhabitant of the Northern States as distinguished from a
     Southerner; also, applied sometimes by foreigners to any
     inhabitant of the United States.
