EtymologyEdit

Compound of 刺し ‎(sashi, sticking into, sticking between; slicing, the 連用形 ‎(ren'yōkei, continuative or stem form) of verb 刺す sasu, “to stick into”) +‎ ‎(mi, flesh, meat).[1][2] The use of the verb 刺す ‎(sasu) here to mean slice is irregular, and might be due to the kill connotations of the verb 切る ‎(kiru, to cut, to slice) during the Muromachi period when this word sashimi first appears.

The term 刺身 (sashimi) is more common in eastern Japan, correlating with 作身 ‎(tsukurimi) in western Japan.
