- mix:  English originally acquired this word in the form mixt or mixed, a past participial adjective, and did not coin the new verb mix from it until the 16th century. Mixt came via Old French from Latin mixtus, the past participle of the verb miscēre ‘mix’. Derivatives of miscēre to have reached English include miscellaneous  and promiscuous , and its Vulgar Latin descendant *misculāre ‘mix up’ has given English meddle , medley , and mêlée . Miscegenation  was coined in the USA around 1863 from miscēre and Latin genus ‘race’.
=> meddle, medley, miscellaneous, mustang, promiscuous
