Etymology

From Middle English anys, borrowed from Old French anis, from Latin anīsum, from Ancient Greek ἄνισον (ánison), from Egyptian jnst.

  • (US) IPA(key): /æˈnis/

  • Rhymes: -iːs

Noun

anise (countable and uncountable, plural anises)

  1. An umbelliferous plant (Pimpinella anisum) growing naturally in Egypt, and cultivated in Spain, Malta, etc., for its carminative and aromatic seeds, which are used as a spice. It has a licorice scent.
  2. (US, often qualified as "sweet anise" or "wild anise") Fennel, Foeniculum vulgare.
    • 1934, The Gull (Golden Gate Audubon Society), volumes 16-29, page 25:
      [] of the butcherbirds which were perched on the electric wires skirting the road must be nesting birds, and that in the absence of trees or brush they must be nesting in some of the weeds along the highway, mostly anise (Foeniculum vulgare).

  • Although fennel is sometimes referred to as anise (even in books), such usage is considered incorrect and leads to confusion with true anise.
