Can any one tell me where the word TAXI come from, the origen of this word seems to be missing and this should be first.
You are looking for its etymology - it is there! SemperBlotto 12:42, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
There is lots of info on a Canadian taxi website called taxidriver.ca. www.taxidriver.ca They have a forum section you can even ask a cabbie a question. Have fun.

I just read http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,24486511-2,00.html and was wondering: why would you call “Taxi!” if you hear someone breaking a glass? Maybe someone can add that usage? H. (talk) 15:30, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
- I doubt it's a different sense; it seems to imply that if a glass breaks, someone may have had too much to drink, and they need a taxi. sewnmouthsecret 15:37, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
