Teleweid ? Non, télévision !

etymologie television "Television ? Le mot vient à moitié du latin et à moitié du grec. Rien de bon à en attendre." (C. P. SCOTT, aux alentours de 1910).

Tele vient du grec telos, que l'on interprète aujourd'hui comme signifiant "loin", "distance". Quant à vision, il est tiré du latin videre (voir).

Petite digression...
Je trouve fascinant de voir comment les mots sont nés, et ont évolué. En fait, l'idée de "voir" a pour racine indo-européenne le mot weid. Cela a donné le mot idein en grec, puis idée. Et à partir de la racine latine, on a eu visage... et l'expression vis-à-vis (= face à face) !

I seldom drop гemarks, hoωever after brοwsing thгough a few of the сomments οn "Teleweid ? Non, t�l�vision !".

I ԁo have а cοuple оf questions for
you if it's okay. Is it only me or do a few of these remarks appear like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I'd liκe to κeeρ up with уоu.
