(n) the meaning or the idea that a word suggests. Origin: L co-, together + nota, mark => 'to mark together' => 'that which is marked together with the primary meaning of the word' The word 'notorious' only meant 'famous' to begin with. However, with time, it acquired a negative connotation. This means, that while it still meant 'famous', it started suggesting that the person in question was famous for a negative reason. The word 'mother' connotes 'female, origin, warmth and unconditional love.'
