Very early 16th cent. Originally meaning "shipworm" (compare Asturian broma / groma which can mean both "jest" or "shipworm"). It came to mean something serious and destructive; later something bothersome; and finally a jest. Borrowed from Ancient Greek βρῶμα (brôma) "shipworm."
From Proto-Indo-European *gwerh3- "to devour."
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Asturian broma "joke," "shipworm," Galician broma, Catalan broma "joke," "fog,"
Indo-European: Balto-Slavic: Old Church Slavonic žьrǫ, Lithuanian gìrtas "drunk;" Armenian: eker "he devoured" (h1e-gwerh3-et); Indo-Iranian: Sanskrit gīrṇá- "devoured"

19th cent. A feminine form created by folk etymology from Latin bromos "oats." Borrowed from Ancient Greek βρόμος (brómos) 'id.'
Of unknown origin. Probably from a non-Indo-European language.
Hellenic: Ancient Greek βόρμος (bórmos) "oats"
11th cent. From Latin bonus, from Old Latin duenos.
From Proto-Italic *dwenos 'id.' Of difficult etymology, despite cognates in other Indo-European languages. There is no convincing reconstruction in Proto-Indo-European that would yield *dwe- in Proto-Italic. De Vaan (2014) tentatively hypothesizes *du̯h2-eno-, but this would become *dwano- in Proto-Italic. If the original root in Proto-Indo-European was *dh3u̯o- (from *deh3- "to give;" see dar) then a suffix *-eno- is merely an ad hoc explanation, for aside from this solitary word there is no evidence for the existence of a putative *-eno- (Mayrhofer 1992).
As a surname, it was originally given to those said to be of good omen.
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Asturian bonu, Portuguese bom, Galician bo, Catalan bo, French bon, Italian buono; Eastern Vulgar Latin: Aromanian bun, Romanian bun; Sardinian: bonu
Italic: Faliscan duenas "of the brave," duenom "brave"The surprising sound shift from Old Latin du- to Latin b- is well documented: duonus "good" > bonus; duellum "war" > bellum.
Fossilized in Spanish. From Latin -bula 'id.'
From Proto-Italic *-þlo- 'id.' From Proto-Indo-European *-dhlo- 'id.'
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin *-bla-: Asturian -la-, Portuguese -la-, Galician -la-, Catalan -ula- (*-bula-), French -bl(e)-, Italian -ba-; Eastern Vulgar Latin: Romanian -bulă (learned borrowing); Extra-Comparanda: English -ble (borrowed from Old French -ble
Indo-European: Balto-Slavic *-mi: Lithuanian -mi, Old Church Slavonic -mĭ; Armenian *-bhi: -b; Hellenic *-bhi: Mycenaean -pi; Indo-Iranian: Sanskrit (inst. pl.) -dhísPresent in words like fábula, but less obviously in words like the -bl- in hablar.
|bus m. (Noun) "bus" Borrowed from French bus 'id.,' a clipping of earlier omnibus "for all." The name omnibus was applied by Jacques Lafitt in 1820 as part of a larger phrase that did not survive: voiture omnibus "coach for all" (Walsh 1913).|
"to search for"
12th cent. Unknown origin but present in some form in Western Vulgar Latin. Perhaps from a hypothetical Vulgar Latin verb *boscare, derived from *boscus "woods," in the sense of searching for kindling. See bosque.
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Asturian buscar "to search," (Palacios del Sil) "to find," Aragonese buscar, Leonese buscare, Portuguese buscar, Galician busca, Italian buscare "to acquire."
