French

Etymology 1

From Middle French, from Old French sens, sen, san (sense, reason, direction), partly borrowed from Latin sensus (sense, sensation, feeling, meaning), from sentiō (feel, perceive); partly from Frankish *sinn (sense, reason, mental faculty, way, direction) (via Vulgar Latin *sennus), from Proto-West Germanic *sinn (mind, meaning), particularly in the sense of "direction". Both Latin and Germanic from Proto-Indo-European *sent- (to feel). Compare also French assener (to thrust out), forcené (maniac). More at send.

Latvian

Etymology

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *senas, from Proto-Indo-European *sénos (old). In Latvian, apparently only the adverbial form sen was conserved without interruption; in the first Latvian dictionaries, only vecs is consistently given as an adjective, whereas the occurrences of sens are few and dubious. Apparently the Latvian adjectival form of sen fell out of usage after Proto-Balto-Slavic times, and was recoined and successfully reintroduced only in the 19th century. Cognates include Lithuanian sẽnas (old, ancient), Sudovian sens (old), Old Irish sen, Gothic 𐍃𐌹𐌽𐌴𐌹𐌲𐍃 (sineigs) (< *sen-ei-), Sanskrit सनः (sánaḥ, old), Ancient Greek ἕνος (hénos, old, last year's), Latin senex (old in age, senior).

Adjective

sens (definite senais, comparative senāks, superlative vissenākais, adverb sen)

  1. ancient, old, of long ago (many years, centuries, ages ago; the people of such times, their institutions, culture, etc.)
  2. old (from relatively long ago; separated from the present by a (subjectively) significant amount of time)
