EtymologyEdit

From a 17th-century verb straut (to flow, to float) (later replaced by straust (to flow quickly, to stream)), from Proto-Indo-European *srew- (to flow), with an epenthetic t (whence also straujš (quick, fast)). Cognates include Lithuanian sraũtas (stream, current, flow) (dialectal straũtas), Sanskrit स्रोत (srótas-, flow, river); for the old verb straut, compare also Lithuanian iterative verb sravė́ti (to flow slowly), Sanskrit स्रवति (srávati, to flow), Ancient Greek ῥέω (rhéō, to flow).[1]
