#85425 - 11/01/02 06:19 PM slogan
Used many times, but I could not find any giving origin.
slogan - 1513, from Gaelic sluagh-ghairm "battle cry used
by Scottish Highland or Irish clans," from sluagh "army,
host, slew" + gairm "a cry." Originally used literally, the
metaphoric sense of "distinctive word or phrase used by a
political or other group" is first attested 1704.
