Etymology 1

From Middle English as, ass, asse, from Old English assa, back-formed from assen (she-ass), from Celtic (compare Old Irish asan, Old Cornish asen), from Latin asinus. Replaced Old English esol, from Proto-West Germanic *asil, also a loanword from the same Latin word.

Etymology 2

Variant of arse; used chiefly in North America. Ultimately from Middle English ars, ers, from Old English ærs, ears, from Proto-West Germanic *ars, from Proto-Germanic *arsaz (compare Old High German ars (German Arsch), Old Norse ars, Old Frisian ers), from Proto-Indo-European *h₃érsos (compare Ancient Greek ὄρρος (órrhos)).

Contrary to the widespread belief of this being a euphemism, it arose as a pronunciation spelling (of the older form arse still used in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, etc.) that shows the loss of -r- before s increasingly common in all words since the 18th century in both England and its colonies. In the USA, "dropping Rs" (non-rhotic pronunciation) was common in prestige speech until the 1860s, when the American Civil War shifted the country's centers of wealth and political power to areas with fewer cultural connections to the British elite. (See also these similar cases, some of which retained both spellings with different meanings: cuss from curse, gash from garsh, bass (fish) from barse, bust from burst, passel from parcel.)

Noun

ass (countable and uncountable, plural asses)

  1. (vulgar, slang) Buttocks.
    Synonyms: see Thesaurus:buttocks
  2. (vulgar, slang, uncountable) Sex.
    Synonyms: poontang, poon, punani, pussy, tail, tang; see also Thesaurus:copulation
  3. (vulgar, slang) Anus.
    • 1959, William S. Burroughs, Naked Lunch, page 68
      Train compartment: two sick young junkies on their way to Lexington tear their pants down in convulsions of lust. One of them soaps his cock and works it up the other's ass with a corkscrew motion.
  4. (vulgar, slang) Used in similes to express something bad or unpleasant.
  5. (Should we delete(+) this sense?) (vulgar, slang) Used after an adjective to indicate extremes or excessiveness.
  6. (vulgar, slang, metonymically) One's self or person, chiefly their body.
Usage notes
  • When used with a possessive, it adds a tone of anger or disapproval to the whole sentence: "he has trouble getting his ass up in the morning" is much stronger and more negative than "he has trouble getting up in the morning". Such usage is also considered by many to be rude, vulgar and offensive, especially when it refers to the person addressed.

Etymology 3

From earlier *asus, from Proto-Baltic *ašus, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂eḱ- (sharp, pointed, edgy). With an extra suffix *-ro, the same stem also yielded Proto-Balto-Slavic *aśras (sharp), whence Latvian dialectal asrs, as well as the Lithuanian cognate aštrùs, dialectal ašrùs. From this stem, there are also Latvian reflexes with ak rather than as (e.g., akmens (stone), akots (awn)), possibly a result of Proto-Indo-European dialectal variation. In Latvian, former u-stem adjectives like *asus were assimilated into other classes; *asus gave rise to both an o-stem and a yo-stem variant which later on became independent words, ass and ašs, with different semantic nuances (compare also, e.g., plats and plašs, or dobs and dobjš). Other cognates include Old Church Slavonic остръ (ostrŭ), Russian о́стрый (óstryj), Belarusian во́стры (vóstry), Ukrainian о́стрий (óstryj), го́стрий (hóstryj), Bulgarian о́стър (óstǎr), Czech ostrý, Polish ostry, Proto-Germanic *agjō (Old High German ecka, egga (corner, edge, point, peak, blade), German Ecke, Sanskrit अश्रिः (áśriḥ, corner, edge, blade), Ancient Greek ἀκή (akḗ, point, tip), ἄκρος (ákros, sharp, pointed), Latin ācer (sharp), aciēs (sharpness, blade).
