Etymology of one

Posted by Johannes on 10 December 2011

The word one comes from the Latin unus, which is related to the Greek oenos [one, ace in dice; Gr: οινός].

Note: Some etymologize unus from the gen. enos of eis [one; Gr: εις].

 

From the same root: unity, unique.

 

In modern Greek:
a) enas:
one [Gr: ένας]
b) enotita: unity [Gr: ενότητα]
