Etymology of cemetery

Posted by Johannes on 14 April 2020

CEMETARY derives from the Latin coemeterium from the Greek coemeterion [κοιμητήριον], which means the cemetery, the burial ground, the graveyard.

In modern Greek:

kemetery: cemetery [κοιμητήρι]

kemame: I sleep [κοιμάμαι]

OED

Η λέξη CEMETARY προέρχεται από την ελληνική λέξη “κοιμητήριον”
