The Triantafyllidis Dictionary suggests that the sense of "tradition" is influenced by semantic loan from French tradition and German Überlieferung,[1] which are themselves from traditio, which in had its sense of "tradition" ("saying or teaching handed down generationally, especially ecclesiastical tradition") influenced by the Koine Greek παράδοσις (parádosis)
