| ` Cf. the American sophomore , a term used occasionally in late seventeenth-century Cambridge, when the undergraduate course still took ten terms , to designate the stage between freshman and sophister , viz. a second-year student. The term is thought by some to derive from an oxymoron derived from the Greek sophos (wise) and moros (foolish). |
