- forum:  Originally Latin forum denoted an ‘out-of-doors place’ – it was related to forīs ‘outof- doors, outside’ and to forēs ‘door’, a distant cousin of English door. It came to be used for any outdoor open space or public place, and in particular for a market place (the most famous of which was the one in Rome, where public assemblies, tribunals, etc were held). Other English words from the same source are foreign, forest, and forensic ‘of legal proceedings’  (from Latin forēnsis ‘of a forum as a place of public discussion’).
