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.
