English[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Middle English mese, mes, mees ‎(dinner, dish), from Old English mēse, mēose, mīse, mȳse ‎(table; that which is set on a table; dish; food, meal). Cognate with Scots mes, mese ‎(a serving of food), Old High German mias, meas (German Mus, Gemüse), Gothic 𐌼𐌴𐍃 ‎(mēs). Compare Old English mēsan ‎(to eat, dine), from Proto-Germanic *mōsijaną, from Proto-Germanic *mōsą, an ablaut variant of the root Proto-Germanic mat- ‎(food) ; the association with "table" is due to Latin mensa.
