EtymologyEdit

From Spanish tabaco, in turn either from Arabic طَبَاق ‎(ṭabāq, a type of medicinal herb), also طُبَاق ‎(ṭubāq) (Spanish circa 1410, Arabic dating to 9th century), or from Taino. The term is thus either an Old World term (of Arabic origin) applied to a New World plant, or a New World word.
