Irish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Irish cloisid, cloistid, apparently a conflation of coistid ‎(is silent, listens) with clos ‎(hearing). Coistid is a late form of con·túaisi, from Proto-Celtic *tawsos ‎(silent) (compare Old Irish tóe ‎(silent), Welsh taw ‎(be silent)), from Proto-Indo-European *teh₂ws- ‎(still, silent) (compare Sanskrit तूष्णीम् ‎(tūṣṇīm, silently). Clos is related to clúas ‎(hearing, ear), from Proto-Celtic *klowstā ‎(hearing, ear) (compare Welsh clust), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱlewst- (compare Old English hlyst ‎(hearing)), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱlew- ‎(to hear).
