History and Etymology for cage

Noun

Middle English, borrowed from Anglo-French, going back to Latin cavea “enclosure for poultry, cage, auditorium of a theater,” of uncertain origin

NOTE: Latin cavea is usually taken to be a noun derivative of an unattested adjective *caveus, from cavus “hollow, concave” (see CAVE entry 1, HOLE entry 1) though what the meaning of such a word would be is unclear, as cavea denotes an enclosure rather than a cavity in something larger; note that -eus is normally a denominal suffix meaning “made of” (see -EOUS). Perhaps of relevance is the suffix of alveus “trough, hull, channel” (see ALVEOLUS).
