Definitions and meaning of luge

luge

Etymology

Borrowed from French luge, from Franco-Provençal, from Late Latin sclodia, from Gaulish stludio, from Proto-Indo-European *sleydʰ- (slippery).

Akin to English sled and English sleigh, Irish slaod (raft, float), Old Breton stloit (traction, sliding) (modern Breton stlej (sleigh)), and Welsh llithr (slide, slippage).

The drinking-utensil sense is so-called from its resemblance to the tracks on which luges race.
