clear at English => English (English Etymology) Of Explained:

c.1280, from O.Fr. cler, from L. clarus "clear, bright, distinct," related to clamare "call out," hence with an original sense of "clear-sounding." An O.E. word for this was sweotol. Of the weather, 1382; of meanings or explanations, c.1300. Sense of "free from encumbrance," apparently nautical, developed c.1500. The verb meaning "to leap clear over" is first attested 1791. Clearance is from 1563; meaning "permission to land or take off an aircraft" is from 1944, Amer.Eng. Clearing "land cleared of wood" is from 1683. Clearing house is 1832, the original one established 1775 in London by the bankers for the adjustment of their mutual claims for checks and bills, later extended to similar institutions. ///
