Arch


Arch: From the Greek verb "archein" ("to begin, rule"), it can also mean "chief " (as in "archnemesis") or "extreme" (as in "archconservative"). In the 17th century, as the "extreme" sense of "arch" came to be used frequently to describe rogues, knaves, and other clever and mischievous sorts, "arch" eventually settled into use as an adjective to describe one with impish or playful qualities. Use of the word has since extended to describe actions or remarks meant to be ironic, cutting, or condescending.
