Etymology[edit]

ʼa- ‎(unspecified person object prefix) + -Ø- ‎(3rd person subject prefix) + -s- ‎(stative perfective marker) + -d- ‎(classifier) + zoh ‎(perfective verb stem), from -zóóh ‎(make a mark, draw a line)

The noun sense is a direct nominalization of the verb, and likely derives from the way that inches would be marked out, either on a ruler or on the item being measured.
