Word Origin & History

disgust
1590s, from M.Fr. desgoust "strong dislike, repugnance," lit. "distaste," from desgouster "have a distaste for," from des- "opposite of" + gouster "taste," from L. gustare "to taste" (see gusto). Sense has strengthened over time, and subject and object have been reversed:
cf. "It is not very palatable, which makes some disgust it" (1660s), while the reverse sense of "to excite nausea" is attested from c.1650. Related: Disgusted; disgusting.
