The Hirsute History of 'Horror' A horror film may make your hair stand on end, but, in an unusually perfect example of etymological symmetry, the idea of hair standing on end is literally the origin of the word horror.

The Hirsute History of 'Horror'

Horror came into English through the French spoken in Britain in the 13th and 14th centuries, and ultimately comes from Latin. Like valor, color, honor, and humor, it’s spelled the same way in English as it is in Latin (these words were re-Latinized in modern American English from a variety of French and Middle English spellings). Horror derives from the verb horrēre, which had several meanings: to stand up, to bristle to have a rough, unkempt appearance to shudder, to shiver (with cold) to tremble (with fear) The “bristle” sense became the basis for the original meaning of the Latin noun horror: “the action or quality (in hair) of rising or standing stiffly, bristling” (according to the Oxford Latin Dictionary). The “shuddering” or “shivering” senses of horror were in use into the 20th century. LEA - Allemand : civilisation. Tatsachen über Deutschland. Apprendre l'allemand - cours d'allemand gratuits.
