[1635-45; < F appartement < It appartamento, equiv. to apparta(re) to separate, divide (v. deriv. of a parte APART, to one side) + -mento -MENT]
Syn. 1. APARTMENT, COMPARTMENT agree in denoting a space enclosed by partitions or walls. APARTMENT, however, emphasizes the idea of separateness or privacy: one's own apartment. COMPARTMENT suggests a section of a larger space: compartments in a ship's hold, in an orange crate.
