VÉGÉTARIEN n. m. De l’adjectif latin vegetus qui signifie végéter, dont on a fait le synonyme de vigoureux en raison de ce que le mot végéter, pris dans son sens littéral, exprime tout ce qui croit normalement, par conséquent vigoureusement. — Celui qui pratique le végétarisme.

VEGETARIAN n. From the Latin adjective vegetus, which means to vegetate, which has been synonymous with vigorous, since that word vegetate, taken in its literal sense, expresses everything that grows normally, and consequently vigorously. — One who practices vegetarianism.
