Alternative forms[edit]


From Middle High German lōz, from Old High German hlōz, from Proto-West Germanic *hlauti, from Proto-Germanic *hlaut-. This is an ablaut variant of *hlut-, whence Dutch lot, English lot, and extinct Middle High German luz, from Old High German hluz.

The genders and stem forms of these variants vary greatly among the Germanic languages; in High German *hlaut- is an a-stem and predominantly neuter, while *hlut- is masculine (probably a-stem).
