Definitions and meaning of sea

sea

Etymology

From Middle English see, from Old English (sea, lake), from Proto-Germanic *saiwiz (compare West Frisian see, Dutch zee, German See, Norwegian Bokmål sjø, Swedish sjö), probably either from Proto-Indo-European *sh₂ey-wo- (to be fierce, afflict) (compare Latin saevus (wild, fierce), Tocharian saiwe (itch), Latvian sievs, sīvs (sharp, biting); more at sore) or derived from *sīhwaną (to percolate, filter), in which case *saiwiz is from earlier *saigwiz, Pre-Germanic *soykʷ-ís.
