EtymologyEdit

Back formation from analysis, from French analyser, from analyse, from Medieval Latin analysis, from Ancient Greek ἀνάλυσις (analusis, a breaking up, a loosening, releasing), from ἀναλύω (analuō, to unloose, release, set free), from ἀνά (ana, on, up, above, throughout) + λύσις (lusis, a loosening), from λύω (luō, to unfasten).

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

analyse (third-person singular simple present analyses, present participle analysing, simple past and past participle analysed)

  1. (transitive) To subject to analysis.
  2. (transitive) To resolve (anything complex) into its elements.
  3. (transitive) To separate into the constituent parts, for the purpose of an examination of each separately.
  4. (transitive) To examine in such a manner as to ascertain the elements or nature of the thing examined; as, to analyse a fossil substance, to analyse a sentence or a word, or to analyse an action to ascertain its morality.

Usage notesEdit

  • According to the third edition of Fowler, both analyse and the American analyze are equally indefensible spellings. The correct but now impossible form should have been analysize.
