  • Represents an older form of sneeze, descending from Old English fnēosan “to sneeze�?. Depending on who you ask, the change from f to s occurred either through a misreading or misunderstanding, or is a “strengthened�? form of Middle English nese, itself descended from ME fnese (as with German niesen, Swedish nysa).
