ORIGIN: Belay. In fact, that is the original meaning of the word: to surround a thing with other objects. This was a literal meaning, of course, but the word came to be used figuratively, as well. It is from that meaning, or possibly from a cognate Dutch word, that the nautical use arose. There, to belay, meant “to secure a length of rope by wrapping it around a cleat or belaying pin, especially a rope attached to sails”. This meaning was then extended to mountaineering and by the heyday of that discipline, the 20th century, to belay meant “to tie oneself, as a stationary member of a roped party, to a firm rock projection…or to a piton, etc…in order to secure oneself and to afford a safeguard to the moving climber” (from The Dictionary of Mountaineering, 1957).
