EtymologyEdit

A word coined in the second half of the 19th century by K. Biezbārdis, probably from the same stem as klaudz(ēt} ‎(to knock, to bang), as a 2nd-declension noun (ending -is). It was not really accepted. A. Kronvalds' coinage līdzskanis became more popular and replaced other competing terms by the beginning of the 20th century.[1]
