The majority of cognates of the word “soldier” that exist in other languages have a meaning that embraces both commissioned and non-commissioned officers in national land forces. The word soldier entered modern English in the 14th century, from the equivalent Middle English word soudeour, from Anglo-French soudeer or soudeour, meaning mercenary, from soudee, meaning shilling’s worth or wage, from sou or soud, shilling.
The word is also related to the Medieval Latin soldarius, meaning soldier (literally, “one having pay”). These words were ultimately derived from the Late Latin word solidus, referring to an Ancient Roman coin used in the Byzantine Empire.
Military and society:
For much of military history the armed forces were considered to be for use by the heads of their societies, until recently, the crowned heads of states.
In a democracy or other political system run in the public interest, it is a public force. The relationship between the military and the society it serves is a complicated and ever-evolving one. Much depends on the nature of the society itself and whether it sees the military as important, as for example in time of threat or war, or a burdensome expense typified by defence cuts in time of peace.
These relationships are seen from the perspective of political-military relations and the socio-military relationship. The last can be divided between those segments of society that offer support for the military, those who voice opposition to the military, the voluntary and involuntary civilians in the military forces, the populations of civilians in a combat zone, and of course the military’s self-perception.
Militaries often function as societies within societies, by having their own military communities, economies, education, medicine and other aspects of a functioning civilian society. Although a “military” is not limited to nations in of itself as many private military companies (or PMC’s) can be used or “hired” by organisations and figures as security, escort, or other means of protection where police, agencies, or militaries are absent or not trusted.
