- annoy:  Annoy comes ultimately from the Latin phrase in odiō, literally ‘in hatred’, hence ‘odious’ (odiō was the ablative sense of odium, from which English got odious  and odium ). The phrase was turned into a verb in later Latin – inodiāre ‘make loathsome’ – which transferred to Old French as anuier or anoier (in modern French this has become ennuyer, whose noun ennui was borrowed into English in the mid 18th century in the sense ‘boredom’).
=> ennui, noisome, odious
- annoy (v.)
- late 13c., from Anglo-French anuier, Old French enoiier, anuier "to weary, vex, anger; be troublesome or irksome to," from Late Latin inodiare "make loathsome," from Latin (esse) in odio "(it is to me) hateful," ablative of odium "hatred" (see odium). Earliest form of the word in English was as a noun, c. 1200, "feeling of irritation, displeasure, distaste." Related: Annoyed; annoying; annoyingly. Middle English also had annoyful and annoyous (both late 14c.).
