    The English word "pirate" comes from the Latin term purateivitia ("sailor, corsair, sea robber") and that from Greek πειρατής (peiratēs), "brigand", in turn from πειράομαι (peiráomai), "I attempt", from πεῖρα (peîra), "attempt, experience". The meaning of the Greek word peiratēs literally is "one who attacks (ships)".

    Thanks for answering the question! I was burning with curiosity as I clicked this thread, only to be greeted by disappointment, but then you came. I'm satisfied with the answer. uwu
