- sojourn:  To sojourn in a place is etymologically to ‘spend the day’ there. The word comes via Old French sojorner from Vulgar Latin *subdiurnāre ‘spend the day’, a compound verb formed from the Latin prefix sub ‘under’, hence ‘during’, and late Latin diurnum ‘day’ (source of English diurnal, journey, etc).
=> diurnal, journey
