- ticket:  Ticket was adapted from early modern French étiquet ‘ticket, label’, whose present-day descendant étiquette has given English etiquette. The etymological notion underlying étiquet was of ‘sticking’ a label on, for it was derived ultimately from the Old French verb estiquier ‘stick’, a borrowing from Middle Dutch steken ‘stick’ – to which English stick is related.
=> etiquette, stick
