- rampart:  Rampart, which means etymologically ‘fortified place’, has a very convoluted history. Its ultimate ancestor is Latin parāre ‘prepare’ (source of English prepare). To this was added the prefix ante- ‘before’ to produce the Vulgar Latin verb *anteparāre ‘prepare for defence’. This passed via Provençal amparar into Old French as emparer ‘defend, fortify’, which had the intensive re- prefixed to it, giving remparer ‘fortify’. From this was derived the noun remper or ramper, which was altered (apparently under the influence of boulevart, source of English boulevard) to rempart or rampart – whence English rampart.
