Etymology[edit]

Back formation from analysis, from French analyser, from analyse, from Medieval Latin analysis, from Ancient Greek ἀνάλυσις (analusis, a breaking up, a loosening, releasing), from ἀναλύω (analuō, to unloose, release, set free), from ἀνά (ana, on, up, above, throughout) + λύσις (lusis, a loosening), from λύω (luō, to unfasten).

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

analyse (third-person singular simple present analyses, present participle analysing, simple past and past participle analysed)

  1. (transitive) To subject to analysis.
  2. (transitive) To resolve (anything complex) into its elements.
  3. (transitive) To separate into the constituent parts, for the purpose of an examination of each separately.

Usage notes[edit]

  • According to the third edition of Fowler, both analyse and the American analyze are equally indefensible spellings. The correct but now impossible form should have been analysize.
