- hose: [OE] The original meaning of hose was ‘leg-covering, stocking’. It comes from a prehistoric Germanic *khuson, which also produced German hose and Dutch hoos. It appears that the metaphorical transference from a ‘long tubular stocking’ to a ‘long tube for conveying liquid’ was first made in Dutch; it was introduced into English in the 15th century.
