- connect:  Etymologically, connect means ‘tie together’. It comes from Latin connectere, a compound verb formed from the prefix com- ‘together’ and nectere ‘bind, tie’ (whose past participial stem, nex-, is the ultimate source of English nexus ). The derived noun connection first appeared, in the spelling connexion, in the 14th century.
- connect (v.)
- mid-15c., from Latin conectere "join together" (see connection). Displaced 16c. by connex (1540s), from Middle French connexer, from Latin *connexare, a supposed frequentative of conectere (past participle stem connex-). Connect was re-established 1670s.
A similar change took place in French, where connexer was superseded by connecter. Meaning "to establish a relationship" (with) is from 1881. Slang meaning "get in touch with" is attested by 1926, from telephone connections. Meaning "awaken meaningful emotions, establish rapport" is from 1942.
