Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Italic *sonts, from Proto-Indo-European *h₁s-ónt-s, the present participle of *h₁es- (whence also sum). Due to vowel reduction, it appears as -sēns in compounded forms of sum. Thus "he who is it", "the real person", "the guilty one". Compare English sooth for an exact cognate, and sin for the same semantic development.
