Nausea is a sensation of the urge to vomit. The word derives through Latin from the Greek word naus, "ship," showing that the word derives from seasickness. The word in the accusative case appears in English in phrases such as "He talked about life insurance ad nauseam," implying the speaker has said more than the listener wants to hear.

It is also the name of a novel by Jean Paul Sartre.
