Definitions and meaning of lode

lode

Etymology

Doublet of load, which has however become semantically restricted. The now-archaic lode continues the old sense of Old English lād (way, course, journey) but by the 19th century survived only dialectally in the sense of “watercourse”, as a technical term in mining, and in the compounds lodestone, lodestar.

Etymology 1

Borrowed from Middle Low German lode (piece of lead (used as weight), plummet), or perhaps from an East Frisian word (compare Saterland Frisian Lood) or Middle Dutch lood, which all had the same meaning (compare German Lot (plummet, solder)), itself a borrowing from Celtic (originally meaning “easily melting metal”), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *plewd- (to flow), whence also Latvian plūst (to stream, to flow). This borrowing is first attested in 17th-century dictionaries.
