Etymology of MEERESTONE

The word "meerestone" is a compound word derived from two Old English terms: "mere" and "stone".

1. "Mere": The word "mere" comes from the Old English word "mǣre", which means a "boundary" or "boundary marker". In Old English, "mere" referred to a boundary or limit, specifically a boundary of land or a district.

2. "Stone": The term "stone" originates from the Old English word "stān", which simply means a "stone" or a "solid mineral substance". This term has been inherited by many modern Germanic languages.

When these two elements are combined, the result is "meerestone", where "mere" refers to a boundary and "stone" signifies a physical marker, usually a stone, indicating a boundary or limit of land.
