EtymologyEdit

From Latin populus; compare Italian popolo. Appears from the 17th century. However, it seems to display a semi-learned nature, at least in its primary senses (the first two below), and partly due to its unique phonetic development (with emphasis on the final syllable, as opposed to the initial one, which is the case with other Romance cognates). Either way, it was likely reinforced by 19th century contact with Italian popolo, French peuple. However, some of the older senses and related terms may be popular or hereditary[1]. Compare also Aromanian popul.
