Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Two theories are prominent: a relation to the Germanic Silingi tribe, whose name derives from Ancient Greek Σιλίγγαι (Silíngai), itself possibly from Silesian for "swampy place." Or, from Old Church Slavonic ślęg (ślęg), śląg (śląg), themselves cognate with the same Silesian source and meaning "dampness, humidity, moisture." More at Ślęża and Silesia.

Pronunciation[edit]

Proper noun[edit]
