Why is UnderWear Different from all the rest?Category: (general)

Underwear. There’s nothing strange about that word, is there? No, not what you know of. Have you ever thought of a “Pair of Underwear”? Not pervertedly, the words themselves. Don’t get it yet? Think of it, a Pair means “Two”. Like a Pair of “earrings” or “socks”. What’s wrong with a pair of underwear? It’s meaning only one. But when you say anything else as a pair it’s Two, besides the fruit. What makes Underwear different? Because it lacks an ‘S’? No, a “Pair of Sheep”. Still, means two but it has no ‘S’ so it can’t be that. That’s my question. Why is a pair of Underwear not meaning two? If anyone knows this answer, please tell me and be logical.

kinda like the plural and singular forms of deer and fish? i dunno...
‹ERASED› says:   9 May 2009   854473  
I guess its because... um.
Well, pants have two "sleeves" for legs, so... 

Is that why it's called a pair?
I honestly don't have a clue.

Well, that can't be it because I don't think there's a thing as a
Pair of Shirts, if so it means to, and it also has two sleeves.

Uhm. I thinks its cuz there are two holes. Ya know, to put your legs
through... I think.. It makes sense.. Sorta..
‹JessyARGH› says:   9 May 2009   412518  
Well, I think that it's called a pair of pants because there are two
hole to but your legs through and the same thing with underwear.
‹♣♪►Tragic End◄♫♠› says:   9 May 2009   751753  
Same with a shirt but it's not called a pair of shirt still. ._.
‹goodfornothing› says:   9 May 2009   299274  
I'm pretty sure it's "a pair of underwear" because it's for two legs
or two boobs. But I am not sure x___x

Because they are symmetrical.
‹♣♪►Tragic End◄♫♠› says:   9 May 2009   822391  
Same with a shirt, still doesn't mean one. :I
‹.............................› says:   9 May 2009   239971

confusing right?
Lyncheh says:   9 May 2009   431496  
I doubt anyone on Kupika is that interested in etymology, to be
‹♣♪►Tragic End◄♫♠› says:   9 May 2009   218218  
It is.

Well, then, i don't see why your commenting then. :I
Plus, look above, it's just a question I got curious about, I could
care less if anyone's interested in it or not, I was just confused,
but thanks for pointing that out.... not really though. There was no
point in pointing it out.

Now that I think about it..

1.It's probably a slang kinda way to say it Idk


2. Americans want to be different from everyone else..

You know like how we didn't want to use the metric system and made up
our own and stuff?
‹♥DesireHope♥› says:   11 May 2009   746997  
Erika pair does mean two but it also means "a" or "single" just
matters how it is used in the sentence is all
