Etymology[]

Old French almanach, from Medieval Latin almanachus, from Template:Xaa[[Category:Template:Xaa derivations|Almanac]]  (almanak), almanac, calendar) > or < Arabic المناخ (al-manāx), climate), from Late Ancient Greek αλμενιχιακά (calendar), probably ultimately of Template:Cop[[Category:Template:Cop derivations|Almanac]] origin. Possibly the central syllable -man- is cognate with moon and month, or else was influenced by Proto-Indo-European *mens- (moon, month) < PIE base *me- (to measure).
