“I do not suppose you coulda speed things up?” – Inigo Montoya

Expedite comes from the Latin verb expedio, meaning, to loose, or to set free. This verb is a combination of two other Latin words. Ex means out of, and pes (genitive, pedis) means foot. To expedite, then is to make foot-loose. If you release the feet from any hinderances, they are able to move freely, and therefore, rapidly. Now that there are no hinderances… expedite!

Expedite has several other related definitions. To expedite is to perform a task quickly. Finally, to expedite is to dispatch, or to send.
