From Middle English, from Old French qualité, from Latin qualitatem, accusative of qualitas, from qualis (of what kind), from Proto-Indo-European pronominal base *kwo- ("who", "how"). Cicero coined qualitas as a calque to translate the Greek word ποιότης ("quality"), coined by Plato from ποῖος ("of what nature", "of what kind").
