horizon
horizon: [14] Etymologically, the horizon is simply a ‘line forming a boundary’. The word comes via Old French orizon and late Latin horīzōn from Greek horízōn, a derivative of the verb horīzein ‘divide, separate’ (source also of English aphorism [16], originally a ‘definition’). This in turn came from the noun hóros ‘boundary, limit’. Horizontal [16], which came either from French or directly from late Latin, originally meant simply ‘of the horizon’; it was not until the 17th century that it began to be used in its modern sense ‘flat, level’.
=> aphorism
horizon (n.)
late 14c., orisoun, from Old French orizon (14c., Modern French horizon), earlier orizonte (13c.), from Latin horizontem (nominative horizon), from Greek horizon kyklos "bounding circle," from horizein "bound, limit, divide, separate," from horos "boundary." The h- was restored 17c. in imitation of Latin. Old English used eaggemearc ("eye-mark") for "limit of view, horizon."
