Etymology

From Middle English {{enm|table}}, {{enm|tabel}}, {{enm|tabil}}, {{enm|tabul}}, from Old English {{ang|tabele}}, {{ang|tabul}}, {{ang|tablu}}, {{ang|tabule}}, {{ang|tabula}}, Template:Gloss, an early Template:Gem borrowing of [[tabula#|tabula]] (tablet, board, plank, chart). The sense of "piece of furniture with the flat top and legs" is from Template:Fro {{fro|table}}, of same Latin origin; Old English used {{ang|bord}} instead for this meaning (see board).
