Origin of quality
- Middle English qualite from Old French from Latin quālitās quālitāt- from quālis of what kind kwo- in Indo-European roots

- From Middle English, from Old French qualité, from Latin qualitatem, accusative of qualitas, from qualis (“of what kind"), from Proto-Indo-European *kÊ·o- (“who, how"). Cicero coined qualitas as a calque to translate the Ancient Greek word ποιότης (poiótes, “quality"), coined by Plato from ποῖος (poios, “of what nature, of what kind").
