1. gazelle（n 瞪羚）=> gaze.
- gaze:  Gaze is probably of Scandinavian origin, although its precise antecedents have never been pinned down. Swedish has a dialect verb gasa ‘gape, stare’, which may be related, and it could be connected in some way with Old Norse gá ‘heed’, source of a Middle English verb gaw ‘gape, stare’, which may lie behind modern English gawk .
These suggestions fit semantically, for the earliest use of gaze in English was in the sense ‘gawp, stare’; only gradually was this over-taken by the politer ‘look intently’. Gazebo  probably originated as a ‘humorous’ quasi-Latin coinage based on gaze, using the Latin first person singular future suffix -ēbō, as if gazebo meant ‘I shall gaze’.
- gaze (v.)
- late 14c., gasen, gazen, "to stare, look steadily and intently," probably of Scandinavian origin (compare Norwegian, Swedish dialectal gasa "to gape"), perhaps related somehow to Old Norse ga "heed" (see gawk). Related: Gazed; gazing; gazer; gazee; gazeful; gazement.
