Latin edit

Etymology edit

Uncertain. Possibly from either Proto-Indo-European *kat- (to link or weave together; chain, net) (compare catēna (chain)), or Proto-Indo-European *ket- (hut, shed) (compare Old English heaþor (restraint, confinement, enclosure, prison), Avestan𐬐𐬀𐬙𐬀(kata, chamber), Mazanderaniکَت(kat, wall)), likely through borrowing from another Indo-European language rather than inheritance due to the presence of the medial -s-.[1] Ultimately may be of substrate or wanderwort origin; more at cot, and see Proto-Uralic *kota.
