lortur

IcelandicEdit

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.
