Etymology

Auld Lang Syne.  Here're my thoughts on the origin of the phrase...  Auld: The scottish form or old.  It contains the 'base' of 'Au' signifying truth.  E.g. Gold, Lt. aurum.  Chemical symbol: Au. Ear drum, Auricle.  True sound?

Lang: languishing.

Syne: union, uniting.  E.g. synthesis, synchronize.

Putting it all together.  True yearning for being with true friends.  These are my thoughts on the origin of the new year's phrase.
