The word consists of three etyma, “in” means “in”, “cur” means“run” and the etyma “sion at the end of the word means that this word is a noun. By combining them together, we can easily deduce that the meaning of the word “incursion” is “run in or enter some territory”.

And it is very easy to find a basic combination between what we deduced and the definition in the Oxford Dictionary, “an attack that penetrates into enemy territory“.
