- remark:  Remark originated in French as an intensified version of marquer, in the sense ‘observe, notice’ (French had acquired marquer from the same Germanic source as produced English mark). The sense ‘say something’ emerged from the notion of ‘making a verbal observation’. The derived remarkable  soon developed the sense ‘extraordinary’ from its original ‘worthy of being noticed’.
- remark (v.)
- 1630s, "to mark out, distinguish" modeled on French remarquer "to mark, note, heed," formed in Middle French from re-, intensive prefix (see re-), + marquer "to mark," probably from a Germanic source such as Old High German marchon "to delimit" (see mark (n.1)).
Meaning "take notice of" is from 1670s; that of "make a comment" is first attested 1690s, from notion of "make a verbal observation" or "call attention to specific points." Related: Remarked; remarking.
- remark (n.)
