- noose:  The notion underlying the word noose is of a ‘knot’, rather than of a ‘loop of rope made with a knot’. The word comes from nos or nous, the Old French descendant of Latin nodus ‘knot’. This was the source of English node , of course, and of the diminutive form nodule , but it has also made a couple of less obvious contributions to English: dénouement , which comes via a French word denoting literally the ‘untying of a knot’, and newel  ‘staircase post’, which was borrowed from Old French nouel ‘knob’, a descendant of the medieval Latin diminutive nōdellus.
=> dénouement, newel, node, nodule
