The word Okey, or OK in short, is used by hundreds of millions of people around the world every day. The abbreviation of "okey" or "OK", which means "ok" in Turkish, which has spread from English to the world, has turned its 182nd year this week. In the Boston Morning Post newspaper published in Boston, USA on March 23, 1839, the word "all correct" in English under a long paragraph was written with the letters OK, either accidentally or as a joke. Allan Metcalf, an English professor from Illinois, claims that OK is the most pronounced word on the planet, being used even more than the word 'Mother'. According to Metcalf's theory, OK is the deformed version of "all correct", which means "everything is ok" in the 1830s.
