tram

Pronunciation

  • (Received Pronunciation) IPA(key): /tɹam/
  • (General American) enPR: trăm, IPA(key): /tɹæm/
  • Rhymes: -æm

Etymology 1

Possibly from Low German traam (tram, shaft of a barrow), from Middle Low German and Middle Dutch trame (narrow shaft, beam), said to be ultimately from a lost West Germanic (Ingvaeonic) word, probably from Proto-Germanic *drum (splinter, fragment), from Proto-Indo-European *térmn̥ (peg, post, boundary), cognate with Latin terminus.

Compare Middle Low German treme; West Flemish traam, trame.

The popular derivation from the surname of the English pioneer tramway builder Benjamin Outram (1764–1805) is false: the term pre-dated him.
