The word “OK” has a few possible origins, but the most widely accepted one is that it originated as an abbreviation for “oll korrect,” a humorous misspelling of “all correct” that was popularized in the mid-19th century in the United States.

It gained widespread use during the presidential campaign of Martin Van Buren in 1840, when his supporters formed the “OK Club” to promote his candidacy.

From there, it became a popular catchphrase and eventually evolved into the ubiquitous term we use today to mean “okay” or “acceptable.”
