English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From earlier hawsey (1625), a nautical term of uncertain origin. Possibly from Middle English *hasi, *haswy, from Old English haswiġ (grey; ashen; dusky), from Old English hasu (dusky; grey; ashen), from Proto-Germanic *haswaz (grey), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱas(w)- (bright grey), surface analysis as haze +‎ -y; although Modern English haze is more likely a back-formation of hazy.
