Etymology[edit]

Borrowing from French Laos with terminal s due to French orthography, from Lao ລາວ ‎(lāo, Lao).

Particularly: “If the English word came direct from the Lao word then what has French orthography got to do with it? If the English word came via the French, that should be explicitly stated. Also why did the French orthography even have the 's'?”
