tile
tile: [OE] A tile is etymologically a ‘cover’. The word comes ultimately from Latin tēgula ‘tile’, a derivative of the same Indo-European base as produced English deck and thatch and Latin tegere ‘cover’ (source of English detect, protect, etc). Tēgula was borrowed into prehistoric West Germanic as *tegala, which evolved into German ziegel, Dutch tegel, and English tile.
=> deck, detect, protect, thatch, toga
tile (n.)
early 14c., from Old English tigele "roofing shingle," from Proto-Germanic *tegala (Old Saxon tiegla, Old High German ziagal, German ziegel, Dutch tegel, Old Norse tigl), a borrowing from Latin tegula "roof-tile" (source also of Italian tegola, French tuile), from tegere "roof, to cover" (see stegosaurus). Also used in Old English and early Middle English for "brick," before that word came into use.
tile (v.)
"to cover with tiles," late 14c., from tile (n.). Related: Tiled; tiling.
