Etymology[edit]

From late Middle English compteroller, a spelling variant of countreroller (from which controller) due to folk etymology: the word was thought to have an etymological connection with Middle French compte (account). Originally the two spellings were equivalent and pronounced identically; the modern pronunciation with [mp] is based on the spelling.
