['fleıvə]

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

c.1300, "a smell, odor," from O.Fr. flaour "smell, odor," from V.L. flator "odor," lit. "that which blows," from L. flator "blower," from flare "to blow, puff," which is cognate with O.E. blawan (see blow (v.)). The same V.L. source produced O.It. fiatore "a bad odor." Sense of "taste, savor" is 1697, originally "the element in taste which depends on the sense of smell." The -v- is perhaps from infl. of savor. ///

flavor at English => English (GNU/Linux) Of Explained:

n. 1. [common] Variety, type, kind. "DDT commands come in two flavors." "These lights come in two flavors, big red ones and small green ones." "Linux is a flavor of Unix" See vanilla. 2. The attribute that causes something to be flavorful. Usually used in the phrase "yields additional flavor". "This convention yields additional flavor by allowing one to print text either right-side-up or upside-down." See vanilla. This usage was certainly reinforced by the terminology of quantum chromodynamics, in which quarks (the constituents of, e.g., protons) come in six flavors (up, down, strange, charm, top, bottom) and three colors (red, blue, green) -- however, hackish use of 'flavor' at MIT predated QCD. 3. The term for 'class' (in the object-oriented sense) in the LISP Machine Flavors system. Though the Flavors design has been superseded (notably by the Common LISP CLOS facility), the term 'flavor' is still used as a general synonym for 'class' by some LISP hackers.
