Luxembourgish

Etymology

From Old High German *los, variant of lōs (loose; free; lacking; sly, deceitful). Compare for the short vowel Ripuarian Central Franconian loss, Dutch los. The uninflected stem of this adjective develops regularly into Luxembourgish lass, while the inflected stem yields the doublet lues (slow, quiet). See the English cognate loose for more.

  • IPA(key): /lɑs/
    Rhymes: -ɑs
