From Old French soif, from Early Old French seif, seit, from Latin sitis, from Proto-Indo-European *dʰgʷʰítis (perishing, destruction, decrease). The -f seems to have been a way to distinguish this word from other words that came to be pronounced as IPA(key): /swa/, such as soit.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /swaf/
  • (file)
