EtymologyEdit

First attested in 1402, with the meaning "untidy woman"; cognate with the Dutch slodder and slet, dialectal Swedish slata (idle woman). From the Late Middle English slutte, from slouthe (sloth). Compare English sloth, Norwegian sludd (sleet), and the dialectal Norwegian slutr (sleet, impure liquid). (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)
