Origin: arzenale, also arsenal, from صناعة.
a public establishment for the storage, or for the manufacture and storage, of arms and all military equipments, whether for land or naval service
Origin: [Sp. & F. arsenal arsenal, dockyard, or It. arzanale, arsenale (cf. It. & darsena dock); all fr. Ar. drin'a house of industry or fabrication; dr house + in'a art, industry.]
An arsenal is a place where arms and ammunition are made, maintained and repaired, stored, issued to authorized users, or any combination of those. Over the centuries, this has included every variant of such a place, whether privately or publicly owned. Armories and arsenals are both places where arms or ammunition may be made, maintained and repaired, stored, or issued. The usage differences between the names is mainly a matter of historical linguistic development. It is a common principle in natural language that synonyms have subtle connotative boundaries.
