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]
