window is an aperture in a wall, door, roof, or vehicle that enables light to pass through while also allowing sound and air to flow through. A sash placed in a frame in the opening; the sash and frame are also referred to as a window. Modern windows are frequently glazed or covered with some other transparent or translucent material, a sash set in a frame in the opening; the sash and frame are also referred to as a window. Many glass windows may be opened or closed to allow for ventilation or to keep out adverse weather. A latch or similar device may be used to lock the window shut or hold it open by varying degrees.

Furthermore, many modern windows contain a window screen or mesh (typically made of aluminum or fiberglass) to keep pests and insects out when the window is opened.

Glass for windows was initially used by the Romans, and it was most likely invented in Roman Egypt, at Alexandria, around 100 AD. Paper windows were common in ancient China, Korea, and Japan because they were cheap and easy to make. Glass was not widely employed in ordinary dwellings in England until the early 17th century, but windows constructed of flattened animal horn were used as early as the 14th century. Itinerant groups in the American west in the nineteenth century began to employ greased paper windows. Only once the industrial plate glass manufacturing methods were developed were modern-style floor-to-ceiling windows attainable.

The English term window comes from the Old Norse vindauga, which comes from the words vindr ‘wind’ and auga ‘eye.’ The Old Norse form has persisted to this day in Norwegian, Nynorsk, and Icelandic (in Icelandic only as a less often used term for a sort of little open “window,” not technically a synonym for gluggi, the Icelandic word for “window”). The word vindöga retains a name for a hole in a hut’s roof in Swedish, while the direct relationship to eye is lost in the Danish language vindue and Norwegian Bokml vindu, much as it is for window. The term is pronounced similarly to window in Danish (but not in Bokml).

The term “window” was initially used in the early 13th century to describe an unglazed opening in a roof. The Old English words eagyrl, which literally means ‘eye-hole,’ and eagduru, which literally means ‘eye-door,’ were replaced by window. However, many Germanic languages, such as standard Swedish fönster or German Fenster, acquired the Latin word fenestra to designate a glass window. The usage of window in English is most likely due to the Viking Age’s Scandinavian impact on the English language through loanwords. Until the mid-eighteenth century, the word fenester was used as a synonym in English. The term fenestration, which means ‘to throw out of a window,’ is still used to describe the arrangement of windows inside a façade, as well as defenestration, which means ‘to throw out of a window.’
