- note:  Latin nota had a remarkably wide range of meanings. Its original sense was ‘sign, mark’, but already in classical times it had broadened out semantically to include ‘alphabetical character’, ‘shorthand sign’, ‘brief letter’, ‘musical note’, and ‘characteristic quality’. Many of these followed it via Old French note into English, where they were supplemented by ‘distinction, reputation’, perhaps inspired by the derived adjective notable . From the same source came notary , etymologically a ‘shorthand-writer’.

Meaning "to set in writing" is from early 14c. Related: Noted; noting.

- c. 1300, "a song, music, instrumental music; a musical note," from Latin nota "letter, character, note," originally "a mark, sign, means of recognition," which is perhaps related to notus, past participle of noscere (Old Latin *gnoscere) "to know" (see know). Meaning "notice, attention, reputation" is early 14c. Meaning "brief writing" is from 1540s.
