- polish:  Latin polīre ‘make smooth and shiny’ is the ultimate source of English polish. It passed into Old French as polir, whose stem form was poliss- – whence polish. The element -pol- of English interpolate is related to polīre.

- polish (v.)
- early 14c., polischen "make smooth," from Old French poliss-, present participle stem of polir (12c.)

The sense of "free from coarseness, to refine" first recorded in English mid-14c. Related: Polished; polishing. Slang polish off "finish" is 1837, from notion of applying a coat of polish being the final step in a piece of work.
