French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French chasque, back-formed from chascun (cf. modern French chacun), by removing the un. Old French chascun derives from a Vulgar Latin *cascunum, from a crossing of quisque unus with catunum < cata unum. Latin cata derives from Ancient Greek κατά ‎(katá) (compare Catalan, Spanish, and Portuguese cada).
