The roots 'scribe' and 'script' come from the Latin word for writing.

Usually, 'scribe' is used for verbs while 'script' is used for nouns.




The word 'scribe' itself, however, is both a verb and a noun. It means 'to write' and also refers to a person who was employed to make copies of documents before printing was invented.
