The word wine comes from the Italian vino (wine), from the Latin vinum (wine) that derives from the Greek oinos (Î¿Î¯Î½Î¿Ï‚). The root vin- has been adopted by many European languages, such as German (der Wein), French (vin) etc.
Alter derives from allotterÎ¿s (Î±Î»Î»ÏŒÏ„ÎµÏÏÎ¿Ï‚), which is the Aeolic form of allotrios (Î±Î»Î»ÏŒÏ„ÏÎ¹Î¿Ï‚) [foreign, different, one as different from another]
From the same root: alternative, alternate, altruism, alteration, alternately, alternation, alter ego, alterable.
