== Etymology ==
''EmerereĒmĕ́rĕre'' is a compound of the [[Latin]] prefix ''eē-'' (a variant of ''ex-'') meaning "out of, from" and ''mereremĕ́rĕre'' meaning "earn"; ''emeritusēmĕ́rĭtus'' is the past participle of the verb.<ref>See [http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=emeritus Etymonline: "emeritus"]</ref> The female equivalent, '''''emerita''''' ({{IPAc-en|ᵻ|ˈ|m|ɛr|ᵻ|t|ə}}{{refn|{{Dictionary.com|accessdate=2016-01-26|emerita}}}}{{refn|{{MerriamWebsterDictionary|accessdate=2016-01-26|emerita}}}}), is also sometimes used, but as is often true of [[loanword]]s, the use of the donor language's [[inflection]]al system faces limits in the recipient language; in English, ''emeritus'' is often unmarked for gender.
