Manuskripts (1)

Etymology[edit]

Via other European languages, ultimately a borrowing from Medieval Latin manuscriptum ‎(writing by hand), from Latin manu ‎(hand[ablative]) and scriptus, the past participle of scribō ‎(I write), apparently a calque of Germanic origin (cf. earlier Middle High German hantschrift, hantgeschrift, Old English handġewrit ‎(what is written by hand, deed, contract, manuscript), Old Norse handrit ‎(manuscript)).
