Top 10 Words That Come from "Mother"

Goto next slide#3: Amateur

An amateur pursues an activity for love, not money.

Amateur has an ancestor in the Latin amare, meaning "to love."

Although the relationship isn't certain, amare is probably related to a term meaning "mother": amma. In the Germanic language spoken before the 12th century, amma meant "mother" or "nurse."
