EtymologyEdit

Beekes states that the etymology is not known. Or: From Proto-Indo-European *sodós, from *sed- (to sit). Cognates include Old Church Slavonic ходъ (xodŭ) and Sanskrit साद (sāda, a sitting, riding, motion). For the semantic development compare English set out from this root and road from Proto-Germanic *raidō (ride, journey), from Proto-Germanic *rīdaną (to ride). (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)
