Etymologie de avion

etymologie avionAlitalia, compagnie aérienne italienne, est en passe de faire faillite.

Quelle est l'histoire du mot avion ?

Mot intéressant s'il en est, d'apparition récente, le mot avion peut être rapproché du mot aviaire... quel rapport me direz-vous ? Et bien, aviaire désigne ce qui a trait aux oiseaux. Et les 2 mots ont la racine commune avis, qui siginfie oiseau en latin savant. Et comme l'oiseau, l'avion vole !

Je vous disais que le mot était récent : on considère qu'il est apparu en 1875, avec Clément Ader, par dérivation d'aviation.

Petite anecdote : jusqu'en 1903, on ne parle pas d'avion, mais d'aéroplane.

Seconde anecdote : certains disent qu'avion est l'acronyme d'« Appareil Volant Imitant l'Oiseau Naturel »... mais aucune source officielle ne permet de vérifier cela !
