I do not see what "+.+.+.+" has got to do with zig-zags. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.0.106.37 (talk) 09:43, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Word Origin[edit]

It would be nice to describe where the origin of this name comes from. Why 'zig', why 'zag'? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.163.0.43 (talk) 17:09, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

The statement that 'zigzag' was printed "in French books in the late 19th century," does not explain "the origin of the word." Thus, the statement: "the origin of the word is -clear-" is unsupported, and appears to be vandalism of the text. Previously, the text read "unclear" and "18th century." According to oxforddictionaries.com the origin is "early 18th century: from French, from German Zickzack, symbolic of alternation of direction, first applied to fortifications."
