EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Finnic *lauta (compare Estonian laud (table)), most likely borrowed from Proto-Baltic [Term?] (compare Lithuanian plautas (shelf)), or alternatively from Proto-Germanic *flauþī (compare Norwegian flauta (crossbeam in sleigh)). The word has also been borrowed into Samic (compare Skolt Sami lu´vdd (plank; float for seine)).

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈlɑu̯tɑ/, [ˈlɑu̯t̪ɑ]

NounEdit

lauta

  1. A board (long, wide and thin piece of sawn timber).
  2. An element in many compound words, where the English equivalent is "board" (The Finnish equivalent for "board" may also be taulu or levy). These compounds can be shortened to plain lauta, if there is no danger of confusion.
    šakkilauta (chessboard)
    silityslauta (ironing board)
    lainelauta (surfboard)
    lumilauta (snowboard)
    ponnahduslauta (springboard)
  3. (colloquial) A woman who has small breasts.

Usage notesEdit

  • As sawn timber, lauta is generally at least 75 mm wide and no more than 38 mm thick. Anything narrower is called rima, and anything thicker is lankku or parru.
