- stream: [OE] A stream is etymologically something that ‘flows’. The word comes from a prehistoric Germanic *straumaz (source also of German strom, Dutch stroom, Swedish ström, and Danish strøm). This in turn was derived from the Indo-European base *sreu- ‘flow’, which has also given English catarrh, diarrhoea, and rheumatism. Non-Germanic relatives of stream include Polish strumyk ‘brook’ and Sanskrit srotas- ‘stream’.
