- process:  Latin prōcēdere meant ‘go forward’: it was a compound verb formed from the prefix prō- ‘forward’ and cēdere ‘go’ (source of English cede, concede, etc), and has given English proceed  and procedure . Its past participle prōcessus was used as a noun meaning ‘advance, progress, lapse of time’. This passed via Old French proces into English, where the notion of something ‘advancing during a period of time’ led in the 17th century to the word’s main modern sense ‘set of operations for doing something’. Procession  comes from the Latin derivative prōcessiō.
