Arabic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably from Latin camisia, from Proto-Germanic *hamiþiją.

A minority of scholars think that the Latin word is indeed borrowed from Semitic. The principal witness for this theory is a Ugaritic form /qms/, seemingly meaning “garment”. However, this word is not attested in any other old Semitic language.
