What does "team" mean?

Answer

The word "team" means a group of people who work toward a common goal, such as winning a competition or completing a job. It can also be used to refer to animals, especially those used to pull transport.

As a word, "team" has a rich linguistic history, having its origins before the year 900. In Old Norse, the "taumr," or "bridle," was a piece of equipment that helped animals to pull a carriage, often in teams of two or more. From here it developed through various European languages to end up as "teme" in Middle English, before settling in its current form.
