History & Etymology for obnoxious

Latin obnoxius "under obligation, subservient, liable, exposed to, vulnerable" (of uncertain origin) + -ous

Note: Latin obnoxius has traditionally been taken to be a parasynthetic derivative from the phrase ob noxiam "due to lớn wrongdoing, on account of bad behavior" (see noxious), but this explanation does not trương mục for the primary senses of the word. Ernout & Meillet (Dictionnaire étymologique de la langue latine) take -noxius as a desiderative derivative sầu from the base of nancīscī "to acquire" (see enough entry 1), parallel khổng lồ anxius "worried"/angere "lớn strangle, distress" (see anxious), alsius "liable to lớn injury from cold"/algēre "khổng lồ be cold." The English sense "objectionable" is probably due lớn influence of noxious & its etymon, Latin noxius.
