Doublet of *sinus*.

- (Classical) IPA
^{(key)}: /ˈsi.ne/, [ˈs̠ɪnɛ] - (Ecclesiastical) IPA
^{(key)}: /ˈsi.ne/, [ˈsiːnɛ]

The function of this preposition was previously done with the use of *sē, sēd* (see *sē-*, *sed*), from Proto-Indo-European **swé* (“self”), thus meaning "by itself", "without". Some still refer the *si-* in *sine* to this root, others refer it to Proto-Indo-European **só* (“this”), whence *si* (“if”). And as sometimes *nesi* was also written, with *-ne* being *nē* (“not”), *sine* might literally mean "not this". Compare with *nisi*.

Others yet refer *sine* to Proto-Indo-European **seni* (“for oneself, without”), itself maybe related to **swé* or a locative of **senH-*. Thus cognate with Ancient Greek *ἄτερ* (áter, “without”), Old English *sundor*.
