... A first-year student is called a 'freshman' and a second-year student
is called a 'sophomore.' 'Pamela Anderson' is an American actress. ...
1. a. A second-year student in a U.S. college.
b. A tenth-grade student in a U.S. high school.
2. A person in the second year of carrying out an endeavor.
The word was probably introduced into the United States at an early date, from
the University of Cambridge, England. Among the cant terms at that university,
as given in the Gradus ad Cantabrigiam, we find Soph-Mor as 'the next distinctive
appellation to Freshman,' but the term has now almost ceased to be known at the
English university from whence it came.%5D One belonging to the second of the four
classes in an American college, or one next above a freshman.
Canadians don't use a specific word referring to their second year of post
secondary education, they refer to it as their second year of college or
university. The following source mentions that briefly, but my best source
is family, friends and myself. We never used the word sophomore. Canadians
consider it an American term.
If sophomore is the correct answer, the question should read 'What nine letter
word is applied to a second year student in AN AMERICAN college or university ?'
