שַׁיִת m. with suff. שִׁיתוֹ a thorn, coll. thorns. Isaiah 5:6 -7:2325 ; 9:17 10:17 27:4. The etymology is doubtful. To me it seems probable that שַׁיִת is for שֶׁנֶת the Medial Nun being softened, like בַּיִת for בֶּנֶת, εἷς for ἕνς, εἰς for ἐνς, from the root שָׁנַן, whence שֵׁן fem. שֶׁנֶת, compare דֶּלֶת from דָּלַל, רֶפֶת from רָפַף. Others understand a thorn-hedge, as being so called from being set round gardens and vineyards (from שִׁית); but this word does not denote a hedge made of thorns, but thorns growing spontaneously in fields and ruins.
