Abstract: 

In this essay, evolution of the word Originality in ancient languages is considered using historical semantics or philology that is study of the formation process of meaning. The hypothesis of this essay proves that the meaning of the word "Originality" in different cultures and ancient languages is Existence and Being as its common usage in Islamic philosophy. To sum up, Originality means Existence and Being. The content of philosophical meaning of this word has been included in Greek so this is why we have such an approach on this word. In the essay, we find this hypothesis completely correct, especially by referring to the famous text of Aristotle and his book Metaphysics.
