- temporary:  Temporary was adapted from Latin temporārius, a derivative of tempus ‘time’. The origins of this are not certain, but it could go back ultimately to the prehistoric base *ten- ‘stretch’ (source of English tend, tense, thin, etc), in which case it would denote etymologically a ‘stretch of time’. Other English derivatives include extempore, tempest, temple ‘side of the head’, tempo  (via Italian), temporal , and tense ‘verb category’.
