German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German vūlezen (originally “to rot”), which is derived from the predecessor of German faul (rotten; lazy) with an intensifying suffix -ezzen (see Proto-Germanic *-atjaną). Later on -n- was infixed, either caused by or causing an association with Lenz (“spring-time”, and hence “time of joy”). Compare also the expression ein lauer Lenz (a period of idleness).

Pronunciation[edit]
