Etymology of tomb

Posted by Johannes on 29 September 2009

Origin of tomb
Tomb comes from the latin tomba, which derives from the Greek tymbos (tomb, tumulus, grave; τύμβος)

From the same root
English: tump
French: tombe, tombal, tombeau, tomber
Italic: tomba, tombare, tombola
Spanish: tumba, tumbal, tumbo, tumbar, tumbado
German: Tumba

In modern Greek (Romeika, the language of Romei-Romans)
a) tymbos (or better tymvos): tomb [τύμβος]

Η λέξη tomb (τάφος, μνήμα) προέρχεται από το λατινικό tomba (τάφος, τύμβος), το οποίο αποτελεί μεταγραφή του ελληνικού τύμβος.
