Word Origin & History

adventure early 13c., auenture "chance, fortune, luck," from O.Fr. auenture, from L. adventura (res) "(a thing) about to happen," from adventurus, future participle of advenire "to come about," from ad- "to" + venire "to come" (see venue). Original meaning was "to arrive," in Latin, but in M.E. it took a turn through "risk/danger" (a trial of one's chances), and "perilous undertaking" (early 14c.), and thence to "a novel or exciting incident" (1570). The -d- was restored 15c.-16c. Venture (q.v.) is a 15c. variant.
