Idioms for aggregate
Origin of aggregate
historical usage of aggregate
Aggregāre is a compound of ag-, a variant of the prefix ad- “to, toward,” and a derivative of the noun grex (inflectional stem greg- ) “flock, herd, band, troop, company”; aggregāre therefore means “to make (people) flock together, enter into association, join”—the association with grex “flock” is clear.
The Latin forms come from the Proto-Indo-European root ger-, gere- “to gather, collect,” which appears in Celtic, Germanic, Baltic, and Slavic. Probably the most important derivative of ger-, gere- for the history of Western culture is the Greek noun agorá “meeting, assembly, market, marketplace, trade, traffic,” especially the Agora in Athens, the chief marketplace and center of the city’s civic life.
