dom-, domo-, domat-, domato- +
(Greek > Latin: house, home ["master, lord" of the house])
2. A building or complex containing condominium apartments or townhouses.
3. In politics, a country governed by two or more different countries with joint responsibility.
4. The system under which a country or state is ruled by two or more other nations.
5. Etymology: from Modern Latin, "joint sovereignty", apparently coined in German about 1700 from com-, "together" + dominum, "right of ownership".
The sense of "privately owned apartment" came into existence in American English, about 1962, as a special use of the legal term.
2. Someone or something that may cause harm, injury, or loss.
3. Etymology: "power of a lord or master, jurisdiction", from Anglo-French daunger, from Old French dangier, "power to harm, mastery"; alteration of dongier, from Vulgar Latin dominarium, "power of a lord", from Latin dominus, "lord, master"; so, danger is said to be a parallel formation of dominion.
It comes from Vulgar Latin domniarium "power or sway of a lord, dominion, jurisdiction", a derivative of Latin dominus "lord, master".
English got the word from Old French dangier and Anglo-Norman daunger, keeping the word's original sense until the 17th century.
There were notions of being in someone's danger (that is, "in his power, at his mercy") and of being in danger of something (that is, "liable to something unpleasant"; such as, loss or punishment).
2. Involving risk or difficulty.
3. Involving or filled with danger; perilous.
2. Characterized by being likely to cause harm; full of risks; unsafe.
2. Etymology: from Old French danter, a form of donter, from Latin domitare, domare, "to tame, to subdue, to vanquish, to conquer"; literally, "to accustom to the house", from domus, "house". Originally "to vanquish;" sense of "to intimidate" is from c.1475.
2. Likely to be discouraging, intimidating, or frightening to someone.
2. Unlikely, or unable, to be frightened or to be discouraged; not daunted; fearless.
2. Any tyrant or oppressor.
3. Etymology: from Greek: despotes, "a mater, lord"; from Latin domus "house, home" + potis, "master, husband".
Originally, a title meaning "master", applied to certain classes of rulers, an honorary title applied to a Byzantine emperor, afterward to members of his family, and later to Byzantine vassal rulers and governors; then to bishops or patriarchs of the Greek Orthodox Church, etc. Now, it refers to anyone who is in charge and acts like a tyrant.
