Origin of disseminate

  • Latin dissēmināre dissēmināt- dis- dis- sēmināre to sow (from sēmen sēmin- seed sē- in Indo-European roots)

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

  • An adaptation of Latin dissēmināt-, the perfect passive participial stem of dissēminō (“I broadcast”, “I disseminate”), from dis- (“in all directions”) + sēminō (“I plant”, “I sow”), from sēmen (“seed”).
