About ceasar vs caesar

Did you know that German “Kaiser” is derived from the Latin “Caesar” and is pronounced a lot more like it than the English version? We’re stuck with our illogical pronunciation, so we have to memorize the correct spelling. (The Russians messed up the pronunciation as thoroughly as the English, with their “Czar.”) Thousands of menus are littered with “Ceasar salads” throughout America which should be “Caesar salads”—named after a restaurateur, not the Roman ruler (but they both spelled their names the same way).

caesar Meaning(s)

  • (n) conqueror of Gaul and master of Italy (100-44 BC)
  • (n) United States comedian who pioneered comedy television shows (born 1922)
