EXAMPLES FROM THE WEB FOR VINELIKE

The blossoms were not tied or twined, they had merely been laid in a row in order to form a vinelike garland.

The running, vinelike clovers are fine to use for climbing-roses on outdoor doll-houses.

WORD ORIGIN

c.1300, from Old French vigne, from Latin vinea "vine, vineyard," from vinum "wine," from PIE *win-o-, from an Italic noun related to words for "wine" in Greek, Armenian, Hittite, and non-Indo-European Georgian and West Semitic (cf. Hebrew yayin, Ethiopian wayn); probably ultimately from a lost Mediterranean language word *w(o)in- "wine." The European grape vine was imported to California via Mexico by priests in 1564.
