"Car"
"Car"
- etymology -

The word "car" (most commonly referring to a modern automobile) derives through Middle English, Old French, and Latin from the Gaulish word "karros" (meaning "wagon"). It is a cognate of "chariot" and "courier", and ultimately comes from a Proto-Indo-European root meaning "to run".
