About Evince

“Evince” comes from the Latin “evincere,” which means “overcome, defeat.”

Did you Know?

In its original form, “evince” did not mean “to demonstrate” or “to reveal,” but rather “to overpower” or “to conquer” — it shares a Latin root with another word, “evict,” meaning “recover property by legal process.” But in modern language, no battle or conquering is required when proving one’s feelings. It’s enough to evince feelings by simply sharing thoughts and emotions as evidence.
