PronunciationModificar

Etymology 1Modificar

From Middle English lake "body of water" from Old English lacu "lake, pond, pool, stream, watercourse" from Proto-Germanic *lákō, *láχō, *lagúz, *lek- (pool, water aggregation, salt brine) from Proto-Indo-European *lakw- (lake, pool). Akin to Old High German lacha, lahha "swamp, bog, marsh" (Patrono:Deu Lache "pool, puddle"), Patrono:Dum [[lake#Patrono:Dum|lake]] "pond, puddle, standing water", Old English leccan (to wet, moisten), Old English lagu "sea". Frequency strengthened in Middle English by the Old French synonym lack "lake" from Latin lacus "hollow, lake, pond". More at leak, leach.
