Seguir, Spanish meaning “to follow”, sounds like it has nothing to do with anything.
But it does, in a subtle way. It comes from the Latin sequi, which means “to follow.” From the same root we get:
- Persecute – from the Latin persequi; the per means “through”, and the sequi is the same “follow”.
- Sequel – directly from the Latin sequi for “follow”, via French.
