В 1884 году родился поэт Василий Каменский, который ввел в обиход слово "самолет"

Why does the calendar of science mark the birthday of Russian poet, futurist, member of the Left Front of Arts (LEF) and Mayakovski’ companion? It turns out that we should be grateful to Kamensky not only for his verses or beautiful definition of poetry – a wedding of words. No, his merits are even greater. The poet introduced a word that is widely used today. He was one of the first to reject foreign word aeroplan and start using Rusian word samolet (airplane) referring to aeronautical machines. This word had been used before to designate either a handloom, or river ferry of special design.
