2. Latin sutus, past participle of suere "to sew" => sew, suture, seam.
3. sew => seam.
4. 区分：sew, sow: sew中间是字母E, 字母E的发音与汉字“衣”相同，所以sew的含义是缝衣服的“缝”。
5. 象形词：s- (拼音“丝”----丝线) + e (谐音“衣”---衣服) + w (象形：缝衣服时从上往下穿一针，然后再从下往上穿一针，如此循环往复) => sew: 用丝线循环往复地缝衣服。同样地，单词seam也具有象形的感觉，中间的-ea-的发音也与汉字“衣”相同，尾部的字母M只不过是字母W的倒置而已，方向相反地缝补。

- sew: [OE] Sew comes, with its relatives Swedish sy and Danish sye, from a prehistoric Germanic *siwjan. This was descended from an Indo- European base *siw-, *sju- that also produced Latin suere ‘sew’ (source of English suture ), Greek humén ‘membrane’ (source of English hymen ), and English seam. It is no relation to sow.
=> hymen, seam, suture
