@Hernán: No. "Gis" es una palabra en español, que según la RAE significa "clarión".

Curioso, nunca la había oído, pero me recuerda a la palabra catalana "guix" (tiza o yeso). Por cierto, la x en catalán se pronuncia como sh.

Perikles me hace falta aquí, pero supongo que "guix" y "gis" deben de tener un origen común en "gypsum" ("yeso" en latín).
