Word Origin and History for l bouché

bouche

n.

French, literally "mouth" (Old French boche, 11c.), from Latin bucca, literally "cheek," which in Late Latin replaced os (see oral) as the word for "mouth" (and also is the source of Italian bocca, Spanish boca). Borrowed in English in various senses, e.g. "king's allowance of food for his retinue" (mid-15c.); "mouth" (1580s); "metal plug for a cannon's vent" (1862; verb in this sense from 1781).
