Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /ziːn/

Etymology

From Middle Low German sîn, from Old Saxon sīn. The infinitive sien along with the words is and sünd derive ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₁es- (to be), which had no separate infinitive in Germanic. The modern infinitive was probably back-formed in late Old Saxon from the former first-person plural subjunctive sīn (we be), since this form had become identical to the infinitive in other verbs during the late Old Saxon period. Compare also German sein, Dutch zijn.

The original infinitive is wesen, from Middle Low German wesen, from Old Saxon wesan, from Proto-Germanic *wesaną, from *h₂wes- (to reside). All the forms with initial w- (imperative and past tense) derive from this root. The infinitive wesen is still the most used one, but in general which one is used is a matter of personal preference and/or region.

Finally, the forms bün and büst derive from Proto-Germanic *beuną (to be, to become), from *bʰuH- (to become), which survives only as relic forms in the West Germanic languages and not at all in the others. Its infinitive and non-singular forms are only attested in (Old) English.
