Today’s word: order. No fancy introductions today. Except this.
Order showed up in the early thirteenth century, the verb deriving from the noun, which meant a religious order in particular. It comes from the Old French ordre/ordene, position, rule, or religious order. Before that, it was the classical Latin ordinem, which pretty much just means order. The Romans actually took it from the Italian root word ord-, arrange, which is interesting because usually when they stole words it was from Greek. And not Italy. Where the seat of the Empire was.
