Old Norse[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Germanic *lewô, whence also Middle Low German , lēhe. Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *leu- (to cut), whence also Ancient Greek λαῖον (laîon, scythe).

Noun[edit]

 m

  1. scythe

Declension[edit]

The word declines as one would expect a weak masculine noun with the stem lé-, but is affected in late West Norse (but not in the Faroe Islands) in all forms except the nominative singular by the regular phonetic change éa > . In the nominative the regular case ending -i is assimilated into the long é. This also causes awkward application of the suffixed article in the accusative and genitive singular, where one would normally expect its i to be elided in favour of the weak case ending -a (without the change éa > , these would be *léann and *léans); the accusative singular with suffixed article is attested as ljáinn in Flateyjarbók (late 14th century). Note also that the forms may not all be attested.
