Lower Sorbian[edit]


From Proto-Slavic *perdъkъ. Cognate with Upper Sorbian prědk, Polish przodek, Czech předek.



prědk m

  1. front (foremost side of something or the end that faces the direction it normally moves)
  2. (specifically) the front of a traditional Lower Sorbian skirt, which is protected by an apron and can therefore be made of lower-quality material
  3. (chiefly in the dual) breast (organs on the front of a woman’s chest, which contain the mammary glands)
