EtymologyEdit

From Middle High German leit from Old High German leid, from Proto-Germanic *laiþaz, whence also English loathe and Old Norse leiðr. From Proto-Indo-European *h₂leyt- (unpleasant; to loathe, transgress) whence also Latin laedō (strike, betray).

PronunciationEdit

AdjectiveEdit

leid (comparative leider, superlative am leidesten)

  1. uncomfortable

Usage notesEdit

  • Only used with sein, werden, (traditionally) tun and (colloquially) haben, and as part of the (reformed) verb leidtun.
  • The spelling leid tun was used before the spelling reform, and the spelling leidtun by the reform at least as of 2004. The common spelling Leid tun was incorrect before the reform and is incorrect again since the reform as of 2006 but was correct by the reform at least from 2004 till 2006.[1] However, the reasoning for lowercase in §34(3) of the official rules is incorrect.[2]
