Q: Please tell me the orgin and the form of the word "catastrophe", thanks.

Catastrophe is a Greek word which literally means – to turn against.

The Romans adopted this word into Latin, and gave it its various metaphorical meanings – a sudden reversal of fortune, a calamitous event, etc

The “strophe” part of the word was until recently used in many other words, but they have fallen out of use – antistrophe (to argue against a position) or Boustrophedon (to move like a cow)

Cata- continues to be used in many English words, usually implying a sense of completion – catalogue, catapult
