English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

First attested in 1402 CE, with the meaning "untidy woman"; cognate with the Dutch slodder, dialectal Swedish slata (idle woman). From the Late Middle English slutte, from slut (mud); of uncertain origin beyond that. Compare the dialectal Norwegian slutr (sleet, impure liquid).
