- embark:  To embark is literally to ‘put or get on to a boat’ – or more specifically a barque  (a word acquired ultimately from late Latin barca, which is probably related to English barge). Its immediate French ancestor, barque, formed the basis of a compound verb embarquer, borrowed by English as embark. The antonym disembark also dates from the 16th century.
=> barge, barque
- embark (v.)
- 1540s (transitive); 1570s (intransitive), from Middle French embarquer, from assimilated form of en- "in" (see en- (1)) + barque "small ship" (see bark (n.)). Related: Embarked; embarking.
