  2. The wird is derived frae the Auncient Greek wird σημαντικός (semantikos), "relatit tae meanin, signeeficant", frae σημαίνω semaino, "tae signify, tae indicate", which is frae σῆμα sema, "sign, mark, token". The plural is uised in analogy wi wirds seemilar tae pheesics, which wis in the neuter plural in Auncient Greek an meant "things relatin tae naitur".
