From Middle English semen "to seem, befit, be becoming" from Old Norse sœma (“to conform to, beseem, befit”) (> Danish sømme (“beseem”)) from sœmr (“fitting, seemly”), from Proto-Germanic *sōmijaną (“to unite, fit”), akin to Old Norse sōmi (“honour”) ( > archaic Danish somme (“decent comportment”)), 古期英語 sēman (“to reconcile, bring an agreement”), 古期英語 sōm (“agreement”).
- (copulative) To appear; to look outwardly; to be perceived as.
- 1813 (14thc.), Dante Alighieri, The Vision of Hell as translated by The Rev. H. F. Cary.
- 1879, Richard Jefferies, The Amateur Poacher, Ch.1:
- They burned the old gun that used to stand in the dark corner up in the garret, close to the stuffed fox that always grinned so fiercely. Perhaps the reason why he seemed in such a ghastly rage was that he did not come by his death fairly. Otherwise his pelt would not have been so perfect. And why else was he put away up there out of sight?—and so magnificent a brush as he had too. […].
1918, W. B. Maxwell, chapter 2, The Mirror and the Lamp:
- That the young Mr. Churchills liked—but they did not like him coming round of an evening and drinking weak whisky-and-water while he held forth on railway debentures and corporation loans. Mr. Barrett, however, by fawning and flattery, seemed to be able to make not only Mrs. Churchill but everyone else do what he desired.
1963, Margery Allingham, chapter 19, The China Governess:
2012 August 5, Nathan Rabin, “TV: Review: THE SIMPSONS (CLASSIC): “I Love Lisa” (season 4, episode 15; originally aired 02/11/1993)”:
- So while Ralph generally seems to inhabit a different, more glorious and joyful universe than everyone else here his yearning and heartbreak are eminently relateable. Ralph sometimes appears to be a magically demented sprite who has assumed the form of a boy, but he’s never been more poignantly, nakedly, movingly human than he is here.
- (obsolete) To befit; to beseem.
