来自拉丁词carcer拼写变体。原指监狱，围栏，后指组成围栏的斜栅，形如字母X，因而引申词义删除。见incarcerate，最终来自PIE *sker, 围，弯，词源同ring, curve.

- cancel (v.)
- late 14c., "cross out with lines," from Anglo-French canceler, from Latin cancellare "to make resemble a lattice," which in Late Latin took on a sense "cross out something written" by marking it with crossed lines, from cancelli, plural of cancellus "lattice, grating," diminutive of cancer "crossed bars, lattice," a variant of carcer "prison" (see incarceration). Figurative use, "to nullify an obligation" is from mid-15c. Related: Canceled (also cancelled); cancelling.
