Comradery vs. camaraderie: Is there a difference?
Comradery and its much more common synonym camaraderie come from the French word camarade, which means "comrade," and whose Middle French ancestor was also the source for our word comrade. In Middle French, camarade was used to mean "roommate," "companion," or "a group sleeping in one room." It traces to the Late Latin word camera, meaning "chamber." Comradery was formed by attaching the -ry suffix (as found in wizardry and citizenry) to comrade.
