salary (n)

/ˈsalərē/


A fixed regular payment, typically paid on a monthly or biweekly basis but often expressed as an annual sum, made by an employer to an employee.

Etymology: From the French salarie from the Latin salarium (salary, stipend, originally soldier’s allowance for the purchase of salt) from sal (salt), which comes from the Greek als (salt; Gr: άλς).

Words from the same root: salt, salad, salami

Bet you didn't know salary was coined because wages were paid to allow soldiers to purchase salt...
