Word Origin & History

videlicet
"namely, to wit," 1464, see viz.

viz.
1540, abbreviation of videlicet "that is to say, to wit, namely" (1464), from L. videlicet, contraction of videre licet "it is permissible to see," from videre "to see" (see vision) + licet "it is allowed," third person singular present indicative of licere "be allowed."
The -z- is not a letter, but originally a twirl, representing the usual M.L. shorthand symbol for the ending -et. "In reading aloud usually rendered by 'namely.' " [OED]
