- erupt:  Etymologically, erupt means simply ‘break out’. It comes from the past participle of Latin ērumpere, a compound verb formed from the prefix ex- ‘out, from’ and rumpere ‘break’ (source of English rout, route, routine, and rupture, and related to bereave, rob, and robe). English actually acquired the derived noun eruption  before the verb.
