English - Etymology

From Middle English _peple_, _peeple_, from Anglo-Norman _people_, from Old French _pueple, peuple_, _pople_ (modern French _peuple_), from Latin _populus_ (“people”), of unknown origin. Probably of non-Indo-European origin, from Etruscan. Gradually ousted native Middle English _lede, leed_ (“people”) (from Old English _lēode_) - compare modern German _Leute_ (“people”). Originally a singular noun (e.g. _The people is hungry, and weary, and thirsty, in the wilderness_ --2 Samuel 17:29, King James Version), the plural aspect of _people_ is probably due to influence from Middle English _lede_, _leed_, a plural since Old English times (compare Old English _lēode_ (“people, men, persons”), plural of Old English _lēod_ (“man, person”)). See also lede, leod.
