10th cent. From Latin campus "field" but metaphorically a field (for an event like a battle or debate). A similar development occurs in English phrases like "playing field" or "battlefield."
From Proto-Italic *kampo- 'field.' Of unknown origin, probably a substrate source.
The original sense in Latin of a treeless field is even better preserved in campa "empty field." Also the origin of myriad toponyms through Spain and the Spanish-speaking world. As a surname in Campo, Campos, del Campo, Cámpiz, it was given to families known for their homes in the countryside.

Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Asturian cansar, Portuguese cansar, Galician cansar, Catalan cansar, Italian cansarePenny (2002) notes that cansar is a particularly interesting archaism in Spanish. Because the Romans entered the Iberian peninsula and began the process of Latinization at such an early date (~3rd cent. BCE), the Latin dialect of the peninsula inherited a number of archaic vocabulary terms. Cansar is one such item, not found in Latin literature after the 2nd cent. BCE but evidently preserved in the dialect of Latin to become Spanish.
|canso (Adjective) "tired" 13th cent. From Vulgar Latin *campsus 'id.,' from Latin campsare "to avoid" (see cansar).|
10th cent. From Latin cantare "to sing," "to chant." From Latin canare "to sing" and frequentive suffix -tare (see note under faltar for origin).
From Proto-Italic *kan-e(je)- 'id.' From Proto-Indo-European *kh2n-e- 'id.'
Romance: Western Vulgar Latin: Asturian cantar, Portuguese cantar, Galician cantar, Catalan cançó, French chanter, Italian cantare; Eastern Vulgar Latin: Aromanian cãntu, Romanian cânta; Sardinian: cantariOriginally canare meant "to sing" while cantare, with -tare added, was more forceful. Over time the impact of cantare was lost and began to match the meaning of canare. Thus, canare was replaced by cantare. When later speakers wanted to indicate force and frequency to the verb, they once again added -tare to cantare to form cantitare - unaware that their ancestors had created cantare from canare to fill that purpose. Cantitare has not survived in Spanish.
