Etymology 1[edit]

From Middle English laminge, equivalent to lame +‎ -ing.


laming (plural lamings)

  1. The act or process of rendering lame
    • 1851, William Tait, ‎Christian Isobel Johnstone, Tait's Edinburgh Magazine - Volume 18:
      One young driver had been the subject of seven lamings, and had thriven in spite of them all. Any boy who had escaped with but one or two slight injuries was considered as particularly favoured.
    • 2016, Bob Sorge, The Chastening of The Lord:
      In contrast, the laming of a body part doesn't incapacitate one's ability to make spiritual progress. Lameness places rigorous constraints on the soul and body, but the believer is still able to go deep in God and grow in Christlikeness.
