Definition sky

Etymology

From Middle English sky, from Old Norse ský (“cloud”), from Proto-Germanic *skiwj?, *skiwô (“cloud, cloud cover, haze”), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)kew- (“to cover, hide, cloud”). Cognate with Old English sc?o (“cloud”), Old Saxon scio, skio, skeo (“light cloud cover”), Danish, Swedish and Norwegian Bokmĺl sky (“cloud”), Old Irish ceo (“mist, fog”), Irish ceo (“mist, fog”). Also related to Old English sc?a (“shadow, darkness”), Latin obsc?rus (“dark, shadowy”), Sanskrit ???????? (skun??ti, “he covers”). Partially displaced Middle English heven, (from Old English heofon) (whence English heaven). Compare German Himmel and Dutch hemel. See also English hide, hut, house, hose, shoe.
