- profit:  Like proficient, profit goes back to Latin prōficere ‘advance, be advantageous’. This was a compound verb formed from the prefix prō- ‘forward’ and facere ‘do, make’ (source of English fact, fashion, feat, etc). Its past participle prōfectus was used as a noun meaning ‘progress, success, profit’, and this passed into English via Old French profit. The Latin present participle prōficiēns ‘making progress’ is the source of English proficient , which took its meaning on via ‘making progress in learning’ to ‘adept’.
