EtymologyEdit

From Middle French satire, from Old French, from Latin satira, from earlier satura, from lanx satura (full dish), from feminine of satur. Altered in Latin by influence of Ancient Greek σάτυρος (sáturos, satyr), on the mistaken notion that the form is related to the Greek σατυρικόν δράμα (saturikón dráma, satyr drama).

PronunciationEdit
