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 lues. See the English cognate loose for more.

Semantically the above adjective was likely merged with Old High German līso (weak; slow; quiet), for which compare German leise (quiet). Such semantic interaction of the two words is corroborated by Ripuarian loss and lies, both of which have a dated sense “weakly salted, lacking salt”.

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /luə̯s/

Adjective

lues (masculine luesen, neuter luest, comparative méi lues, superlative am luesten)

  1. quiet
  2. slow
