EtymologyEdit

From Koine Greek ἄλογον (álogon, horse, cavalry), neuter form of Ancient Greek ἄλογος (álogos, unreasoning, speechless, adjective). Used in the military to differentiate between soldiers—beings with reason and speech—and animals—unreasoning, "ἄλογον ζῶον". As soldiers mostly used horses, the meaning has been associated with them. Morphologically ά- (á-, without) +‎ λόγος (lógos, reason, speech).
