    "Usted" It is an abbreviation of "vuestra merced" (your mercy), it has nothing to do with professor

    I think that either Spanish passed it to Arabic, or Arabic passed it to spanish.

    In Arabic its pronounced the same as in Spanish, only it changes slightly the D sound.. That in Spanish is a pure d.. But in Arabic in that case is prounonced like a dh (like the th.. But on the d.. So dh)

    I have the doubt that it has 0 correlation with the arabic

    They are the same sound and same word, and the fact that in Arabic means "Professor" that is a respected very formal title is very curious and too much coincidence to be unrelated

    "Usted" is formal, not informal. "Tu" is informal.

    What you believe does not matter, Terrone. Usted come from "vuestra merced". No one of these words come from Arabic.

    Threads like these just show one more time your absolute envy toward us, and your absolute ignorance and illiteracy

    Now go to create a thread about the Italian word zucchero coming from Arabic, Terrona
    ¡España para los españoles! Spain for the Spaniards!

    "usted" is a form of treatment to another person, and means exactly that: "vuestra merced". Was originally "vusted", which is an abbreviation in the same way that "vuecencia" is an abbreviation of "vuestra excelencia" (your excellence). currently it means the same as "you", but with a treatment of respect to unknown or older people, although in the Canary Islands or Latin America they always use it
