Origin of vomit

From Middle English vomiten, from Latin vomitāre, present active infinitive of vomitō (“vomit repeatedly"), frequentative form of vomō (“be sick, vomit"), from Proto-Indo-European *wem- (“to spew, vomit"). Cognate with Old Norse váma (“nausea, malaise"), Old English wemman (“to defile"). More at wem.
