Depart

The word for today is DEPART, which comes from the Latin word PARTIRI, meaning TO DIVIDE.

The prefix DE in Latin means FROM, AWAY FROM, or DOWN FROM.
The word PARTITION, which is a wall that separates rooms, also comes from the Latin word PARTIRI. Also, a mother giving birth is dividing herself from her baby, which leads to the words PARTUM, giving birth, PRE PARTUM, before birth, and POST PARTUM, after birth.
