A. Arthritis, like many medical terms, is a simple combination of two greek or latin roots "arthro" meaning joint-related and "itis" meaning inflammation. Arthr-itis: joint inflammation.

As to what causes it, stupid quiestion. Your five minute google search should have at least told you that there are different types of arthritis with different causes. In general though, it's autoimmune disease and wear-and-tear.

fyi, google does not filter it's content to be maximally confusing. All the information I just gave you is available and about equally easy to understand on wikipedia.
