- utensil:  Latin ūtēnsilis meant ‘usable, useful’. It was derived from the verb ūtī ‘use’ (source also of English use, utility, utilize, etc). In the Middle Ages it was adapted into a noun, ūtēnsilia, meaning ‘things for use, implements’. This passed into English via Old French utensile as utensil, still a collective noun, but by the 15th century it was being used for an individual ‘implement’.
