Definition of «Offspring»

Offspring: The offspring are strictly speaking the progeny, or young, born to a person.

In a larger sense, the offspring are collectively all of the descendants, brood or family. For example, the offspring of someone with a genetic (inherited) condition such as Huntington disease are themselves at risk for the disease.

"Offspring" springs from the Middle English "ofspring" which sprang from the Old English "of" meaning "from" + "springan" meaning "to spring" = to spring from.
