English - Etymology 1

From Middle English _lake_ (“lake, watercourse, body of water”), from Old English _lacu_ (“lake, pond, pool, stream, watercourse”), from Proto-Germanic _*lakō_, _*lōkiz_ (“stream, pool, water aggregation", _originally_ "ditch, drainage, seep”), from Proto-Germanic _*lekaną_ (“to leak, drain”), from Proto-Indo-European _*leg-_, _*leǵ-_ (“to leak”). Cognate with Scots _lake_ (“pond, pool, flowing water of a stream”), Dutch _laak_ (“lake, pond, stream”), Middle Low German _lāke_ (“standing water, water pooled in a riverbed”), German _Lache_ (“pool, puddle”), Icelandic _lækur_ (“stream, brook, flow”). See also leak, leach. Despite their similarity in form and meaning, English _lake_ is not related to Latin _lacus_ (“hollow, lake, pond”), Scottish Gaelic _loch_ (“lake”), Ancient Greek _λάκκος_ (lákkos, “waterhole, tank, pond, pit”), all from Proto-Indo-European _*lakʷ-_ (“lake, pool”). Instead, this root is represented by Old English _lagu_ (“sea, flood, water, ocean”), through Proto-Germanic _*laguz_, _*lahō_ (“sea, water”), perhaps related to Albanian _lag_ (“to water, make wet, moisturize”). See lay. NOUN LAKE (_plural_ LAKES) * (now chiefly dialectal) A small stream of running water; a channel for water; a drain. * A large, landlocked stretch of water. * A large amount of liquid; _as_, a wine lake. * 1991, Robert DeNiro (actor), _Backdraft_: So you punched out a window for ventilation.
