Origin of landscape
- Dutch landschap from Middle Dutch landscap region land land lendh- in Indo-European roots -scap state, condition (collective suff.)
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- From an alteration (due to Dutch landschap) of earlier landskip, lantschip, from Middle English *landschippe, *landschapp, from Old English landscipe, landsceap (“region, district, tract of land”), equivalent to land + -ship; in some senses from Dutch landschap (“region, district, province, landscape”), from Middle Dutch landscap, lantscap (“region”), from Old Dutch *landskepi, *landskapi (“region”). Cognate with Scots landskape, landskep, landskip (“landscape”), West Frisian lânskip (“landscape”), Low German landschop (“landscape, district”), German Landschaft (“landscape, countryside, scenery”), Swedish landskap (“landscape, scenery, province”), Icelandic landskapur (“countryside”).
