Palate [pal-it] Noun The sense of taste: a dinner to delight the palate. Relish or enjoyment of taste and flavor: A great appreciation of the senses. Appreciation of taste and flavor: sophisticated and discriminating. Intellectual or aesthetic taste; mental appreciation.

Origin: 1350 – 1400; “Roof of the mouth,” from Old French “palat” and directly from the Latin “palatum: roof of the mouth,” perhaps of Etruscan origin (Klein).

Popularly considered the seat of taste, hence, transferred meaning, “sense of taste,” (late 14c), which also had roots in Latin. Related: Palatal, palatalize.
