coat

coat
coat early 14c., "outer garment," from O.Fr. cote "coat, robe, tunic, overgarment," from a Germanic source, perhaps Frank. *kotta "coarse cloth" (Cf. O.S. kot "woolen mantle," O.H.G. chozza "cloak of coarse wool," Ger. Kotze "a coarse coat"), of unknown origin. Transferred to animal's natural covering late 14c. Extended 1660s to a layer of any substance covering any surface. Sp., Port. cota, It. cotta are Germanic loan-words. The verb is from late 14c., "to provide with a coat;" meaning "to cover with a substance" is from 1753. Related: Coated; coating. The latter, as a noun, is from 1768.
