Word History:

This Good Word comes from Latin profligatus, the past participle of profligare "knock down, overthrow, ruin", made up of pro "forward" + fligare, "to strike down". Relatives of pro are ubiquitous throughout Indo-European languages. In English it emerged as or in for, from, front and in Greek as peri "around", found in our word periscope. In Russian it is a prefix, pere- "over, again" found in the word perestroika "rebuilding, building again". The Old Persian language, Avestan, had a word pairidaeza "a wall around a garden or orchard" from pairi "around" + daeza "wall". The Greeks were so impressed with the Persian orchards inside them that they borrowed the word to refer to luxurious gardens then passed it on to us as paradise.
