- n. 后桅（等于mizen）
- adj. 后桅的（等于mizen）
- mizzen (n.)
- "aftermost fore-and-aft sail of a three-masted ship," early 15c., from Middle French misaine "foresail, foremast," altered (by influence of Italian mezzana "mizzen") from Old French migenne, from Catalan mitjana, from Latin medianus "of the middle" (see median). The sense in this transmission must have been something other than "middle," or the thing described changed, because the "middle" mast on a ship is the mainmast. Klein suggests an alternate etymology of the French word from Arabic, via Italian.
- 1. Five minutes after, it was down; and we sailed under mizzen - tops'ls and to'gall'nt sails.'
- 五分钟以后, 大帆落下来了, 我们只得扯着尾帆和上桅帆航行.
