EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from English insect ("-sec-" [sɛk] changed to "sök" [søk]).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

sök (plural söks)

  1. (obsolete) insect

Usage notesEdit

This older term has been replaced by the word näsäk (insect) (which ultimately derives from the Latin word insectum "insect", by way of the French phrase: "un insecte" [(œ̃ ).nɛ̃.sɛkt], which was transformed to [nɛ.ˈsɛk] and respelled as "näsäk").
