EtymologyEdit

From Middle English ampte, amte, emete, amete, from Old English ǣmette (ant), from Proto-West Germanic *āmaitijā (literally biting-thing, cutter), from Proto-Germanic *ē- (off, away) + *maitaną (to cut), from Proto-Indo-European *mai- (to cut). Cognate with Scots emmot (ant), dialectal Dutch emt, empt (ant), German Ameise and Emse (ant). See also emmet.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

ant (plural ants)

  1. Any of various insects in the family Formicidae in the order Hymenoptera, typically living in large colonies composed almost entirely of flightless females.
    • 2013 July 26, Nick Miroff, “Mexico gets a taste for eating insects [] ”, in The Guardian Weekly, volume 189, number 7, page 32:
      The San Juan market is Mexico City's most famous deli of exotic meats, where an adventurous shopper can hunt down hard-to-find critters [] . But the priciest items in the market aren't the armadillo steaks or even the bluefin tuna. That would be the frozen chicatanas – giant winged ants – at around $500 a kilo.
  2. (Internet) A Web spider.
