CIDE DICTIONARY

sophomoren. [Probably fr. soph or sophister + Gr. foolish. 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.].
