- factotum:  A factotum is literally someone who ‘does everything’. It was coined from fac, the imperative form of the Latin verb facere ‘do’, and tōtum ‘all’ (source of English total). Originally it was used virtually as a name, in phrases such as ‘Master Factotum’, and it does not seem to have been until the late 18th century that it settled into its current role as an ordinary noun.
=> fact, total
- factotum (n.)
- "one who does all kinds of work for another," 1560s, from Medieval Latin factotum "do everything," from fac, imperative of facere "to make, do" (see factitious) + totum "all" (see total (adj.)).
- 1. We need a factotum to take care of the workshop.
