Etymology 1Edit

Attested in local Latin documents since the 9th century ("per marcas certas et sinales"), together with the related terms marco (landmark), marcar (to mark) and demarcar (to demarcate).[1] Given its early local documentation and its productivity, it is not a borrowing from Italian,[2] but from Gothic or Suevic.[3] Ultimately from Proto-Germanic *marką (mark), from Proto-Indo-European *merǵ- (boundary, border).

NounEdit

marca m (plural marcas)

  1. mark, signal [9th–21th c.]
