Middle English (originally as a verb in the sense 'be in a trance'): from Old French transir 'depart, fall into trance', from Latin transire 'go across'.

  • transit from Late Middle English:

    Transit initially meant ‘passage from one place to another’. It is from Latin transire ‘go across’. The grammatical term transitive (late 16th century) for verbs that ‘go across’ to an object is from the same source, as are trance (Middle English), and transient (Late Middle English).
