Talk:listless

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

The etymology part "from list+less" doens't make sense. Nothing in list fits. I found elsewhere it's from middle English liste ("pleasure"), but I'd better leave actual changing to people more knowledgeable on this. 88.154.41.145 22:22, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Yep. Plus, in my mind, it has a second meaning of "ambivalent" or "apathetic", although maybe that's just me. Tooironic 11:44, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
