Etymologie [ di-'mär-"kAt, 'dE-" ] (transitive verb.) 1816. First recorded c.1752, from Spanish linea de demarcacion and/or Portuguese linha de demarcaçao, the demarcation line laid down by the Pope on May 4, 1493, dividing the New World between Spain and Portugal on a line 100 leagues west of the Cape Verde Islands. Both derive from demarcar, from de- + marcar (“to mark”), from Italian marcare, from the Germanic root of march.
