Ubicar and Ubiq­ui­tous

Ubicar (Span­ish for “to put some­where” or “to place”) comes from the Latin ubi, mean­ing “where.”

From the Latin ubi, we get a bunch of lo­ca­tion-re­lat­ed words in Eng­lish, such as, ubiq­ui­tous — which ac­tu­al­ly means, “every­where!” Some­thing that is ubiq­ui­tous re­al­ly is every­where.

The u‑b-c of ubicar maps clear­ly to the u‑b-qu of ubiq­ui­tous.
