- leisure:  The etymological idea underlying leisure is that of ‘having permission’, and hence of ‘having the freedom to do as one likes’. The word came via Anglo-Norman leisour from Old French leisir. This was a noun use of a verb that meant ‘be permitted’, and came from Latin licēre ‘be permitted’ (source of English illicit  and licence ).
=> illicit, licence
