EtymologyEdit

From Old Norse lortr, cognate with Faroese lortur (excrement, feces), Danish lort (feces). Perhaps from or related to Proto-Germanic *lurtaz (left; left-handed; crooked; bent; warped; underhanded; deceitful; limping), from Proto-Indo-European *lerd- (to bend; arch; crook). If so, then related also to Old English lort (crooked), Middle High German lurz, lerz (left; left-handed). More at lirt.
