With its origin in Latin, tandem means ‘at length’. It was at first used in English as an expression for a carriage drawn by two horses harnessed one in front of the other. The first meaning reflects this late 18th-century sense, but since the middle of 20th century this idiom has been commonly used to mean simply ‘working as a team or a group’.
