:| OK was indirectly originated by Andrew Jackson, who in his presidency wrote "OK" on all of the documents he was required to check over.

Reason being, Jackson was very uneducated, and didn't know how to spell "all correct", which was what he was trying to abbreviate. Although, as you can see, he couldn't so much as get the first two letters correct.

The word "okay" slowly came into being as society spread around the phrase "OK". It's just an alternate way of spelling. So, "OK" did not come from "okay"; "Okay" came from "OK".

History, bitches.

Not completely true. Very old cartoon artists would use misspelled words to create humorous dialogue for their characters. They would then abbreviate those words after they became popular and familiar. You're right in that Okay comes from oll korrect. An example of another word they used was NC, standing for 'nuff ced, which is cool because a lot of people say that today.

No... it comes from Dutch. You're killing me

Well, maybe that's where the Dutch got it.

But nobody cares about the Dutch.

This is how we got it in 'Murica.

Don't know how true this is, but my history teacher had told me that it was 0(zero)K 0k, used in WWII because when checking to see if there were any casualties. It meant, Zero killed, thus the situation was "OK"

our history teacher told us it had to do with "old kinderhook"
Martin van Buren had acquired the nickname of Old Kinderhook (he was born in Kinderhook, New York). Democrats opened the OK Club in Grand Street, New York City, based on the initials of van Buren's nickname.

The expression OK soon became the watchword of this club and Democratic newspaper equated the initials with the attempts of the party to "make all things OK".

How the **** could he even tell if it was correct if he doesn't even know what the words "all" and "correct" start with?

If I recall, he thought it was spelled "Oll Korrekt."

Probably reasons:

Germany
Oll Korret (all right)

Idigenous
Okeh (yes)

Greek
Olla kalá (all right)

There is more reasons, like: zero killed (0k), when troops came back from a day of conflict without losing any soldier

sorry about my english
