Etymology[edit]

From Arabic لِ(li). The final -l may be due to backformation from the personal forms, themselves derived by reduplication. Compare North Levantine Arabic لإلي(laʾilli, to me), لإلك(laʾillak, to you), etc., reduplicated personal forms of ل(la). And compare a similar backformation from the personal forms in Maltese lejn.
