Etymology

c.1230, from O.Fr. avancer "move forward," from V.L. *abanteare, from L.L. abante "from before," composed of ab- "from" + ante "before, in front of, against," from PIE *anti "against," locative singular of *ant- "front, forehead." The -d- was inserted 16c. on mistaken notion that initial a- was L. ad-. Meaning "to give money before it is legally due" is first attested 1679. The noun is first recorded 1528; advances "amorous overtures" is from 1706. The adj. (in advance warning, etc.) is not recorded before 1910. Advanced in the fig. sense of "far ahead on a course" is from 1534.
