Etymology[edit]

From Middle French legs, latinising spelling of lais, from Old French lais, derived from laisser (to let, leave). The Middle French alteration is based on an etymologically unfounded association with Latin lēgātum. The -g- was originally silent, but has come to be pronounced since the 19th century by analogy with the verb léguer, a borrowing from Latin lēgāre.
