EtymologyEdit

From Middle French glaise, glase, from Old French glaise, gloise, of obscure and uncertain origin. According to one theory, derived from Gaulish *glisa, which is attested in Late Latin glissomarga, glīsomarga (a kind of marl, white marl), although the precise meaning of *gliso- is uncertain.

Alternatively, perhaps derived from a Germanic language, compare Dutch klei, German Low German Klei, English clay.
