Origin of collogue

  • Perhaps alteration (influenced by Latin colloquī to converse) of colleague to enter into an alliance from Old French colleguer from Latin colligāre to collect (influenced by Old French collegue colleague) colligate

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • 1590s (as colloguing), presumably from colleague (“to associate”) and French colloque (“secret meeting”), from Latin (English colloquy), possibly influenced by dialogue.

    From Wiktionary

  • Ultimately from Latin collega (“a partner in office”) + Ancient Greek λόγος (logos, “speech, oration, discourse”), perhaps partly via Latin loquor (“I speak”).
