dimension (n.)
late 14c., "measurement, size," from Latin dimensionem (nominative dimensio) "a measuring," noun of action from past participle stem of dimetri "to measure out," from dis- (see dis-) + metiri "to measure" (see measure (v.)). Meaning "any component of a situation" is from 1929. Related: Dimensional; dimensions.
