来自PIE*gras, 吃，吞食，词源同gorge, voracity. 字母r脱落。
- gastric:  Grek gastér meant ‘stomach’ (it was related to Greek gráō ‘gnaw, eat’ and Sanskrit gras- ‘devour’). It was used as the basis of the modern Latin adjective gastricus ‘of the stomach’, which English acquired via French gastrique. Derivatives include gastronomy ‘culinary connoisseurship’ , originally a French coinage, and gastropod ‘mollusc’ , literally ‘stomach-foot’ (from the ventral disc used by molluscs as a ‘foot’).
- gastric (adj.)
- 1650s, from Modern Latin gastricus, from Greek gaster (genitive gastros) "stomach, paunch, belly," often figurative of gluttony or greed, also "womb, uterus; sausage," by dissimilation from *graster, literally "eater, devourer," from gran "to gnaw, eat," from PIE root *gras- "to devour" (cognates: Greek grastis "green fodder," Latin gramen "fodder, grass," Old English cærse "cress").
