Person – Mask or character

Person: A human

The word person came to the English language from the French word ‘persone’. This was a derivation of the word ‘persona’ from late Latin, and which had two meanings really, it meant ‘a human’ but also meant ‘a character’ and in fact, in earlier Latin, the word meant ‘mask’ or ‘part in a play’.
