Etymology[edit]

Singularized plural of earlier *leg, *lig. Either from Latin lēx, legem ("law"), from Proto-Indo-European *leǵ- (to collect, to speak), or from the same root of Lithuanian lygùs (equal) and Old Prussian līgan (court), as substantiated by ligje 'mourning, dirge'.

Noun[edit]

  1. law
  2. statute
