- result:  Etymologically, to result is to ‘jump backwards’. The word comes ultimately from Latin resultāre ‘jump backwards’, hence ‘rebound’, a compound verb formed from the prefix re- ‘back’ and saltāre ‘jump’ (source of English insult, sauté, etc). In medieval Latin it came to be used figuratively for ‘happen as a consequence’, the sense in which English borrowed it. It was not used as a noun until the 17th century.
