English - Etymology

From Middle English _sisoures_ (attested since 1350–1400), from Old French _cisoires_, from Vulgar Latin _*cīsōria_, plural of Late Latin _cīsōrium_ (“cutting tool”) (compare _chisel_); from Latin word root _-cīsus_ (compare _excise_) or _cæsus_, past participle of _cædere_ (“to cut”). * The current spelling, from the 16th century, is due to association with Medieval Latin _scissor_ (“tailor”), from Latin carrying the meaning “carver, cutter”, from _scindere_ (“to split”).
