"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"
Sentence - late 13c., "doctrine, authoritative teaching," from O.Fr. sentence (12c.), from L. sententia "thought, meaning, judgment, opinion," fromsentientem, prp. of sentire "be of opinion, feel, perceive" (see sense). Loss of first -i- in L. by dissimilation. Meaning "punishment imposed by a court" is from c.1300; that of "grammatically complete statement" is attested from mid-15c., from notion of "meaning," then "meaning expressed in words." The verb meaning "to pass judgment" is recorded from c.1400 -Etymonline.com
Verdict - 1530s, from M.E. verdit (c.1300), "a jury's decision in a case," from Anglo-Fr. verdit (O.Fr. voirdit), from ver, veir "true" (see very) + dit, pp. of dire "to say" (see diction). Spelling influenced by M.L. verdictum. -Etymonline.com
"The idea of having sentence first!"
First is original and principal, principal is prince, and prince sounds like prints. So then would the first sentence be the first judgement or judgement prince/prints? There must be a principal sentence for the jury to consider. How can the jury consider something if there is nothing there to consider in the first place?
Stuff - mid-15c., "to cram full," from stuff (n.); earlier "to furnish a fort or army with men and stores" (c.1300). The ballot-box sense is attested from 1854, Amer.Eng.; in expressions of contempt and suggestive of bodily orifices, it dates from 1952. Stuffing "seasoned mixture used to stuff fowls before cooking" is from 1530s. Stuffed in reference to garments, "padded with stuffing" is from mid-15c.; hence stuffed shirt"pompous, ineffectual person" (1913). -Etymonline.com
Nonsense - No sense. Perhaps symbolizing Lady Justice wearing a blindfold, expressing that Justice is blind.
"Hold your tongue," said the Queen turning purple.
Isn't purple a symbol for the Crown Chakra and for Royalty? Speaking in a tongue is like speaking a specific type or custom of language. So is the Queen offering some advice to Alice, for her to hold her tongue, which would mean that Alice should continue communicating with the language in her previous correspondence?
"Off with her head!" the Queen shouted at the top of her voice.
Isn't the head at the top of the body? Don't we have the Head of State? Is State perhaps like a Court? So saying, "Off with your head!" is sort of like indicating that Alice forfeits the jurisdiction of her court to the Queen's court.
Card - (n.) c.1400, from M.Fr. carte (14c.), from L. charta "leaf of paper, tablet," from Gk. khartes "layer of papyrus," probably from Egyptian. Form influenced after 14c. by It. carta (see chart). Sense of "playing cards" is oldest in French and English; the sense extended by 1590s to similar flat, stiff bits of paper. Meaning "printed ornamental greetings for special occasions" is 1869. Application to clever or original persons (1836, originally with an adjective, e.g. smart card) is from the playing-card sense, via expressions such as sure card "an expedient certain to attain an object" (c.1560). Verb meaning "require (someone) to show ID" is 1970s. Card-carrying first attested 1948, during U.S. Cold War anti-Communist paranoia. Card table is from 1713. Card-sharper is 1859. House of cards in the figurative sense is from 1640s, first attested in Milton. To have a card up (one's) sleeve is 1898; to play the _______ card is from 1886, originally the Orange card, meaning "appeal to Northern Irish Protestant sentiment (for political advantage)." -Etymonline.com
