Lemizh / English dictionary
to make cars
These days, automobiles are mostly used in rural areas with insufficient infrastructure. When townspeople say labÌt., they typically refer to underground, tram or railroad cars.
< NLem labatl‑a
< Mag Lábatlan ‘a northwest Magyarian town’, compound of
Mag láb ‘leg’
Mag ‑atlan ‘-less’
The town of Lábatlan used to be famous for producing horse-drawn coaches. The omission of ‑n in the NLem loan might be due to a reanalysis as partitive case suffix, based on the idea that coaches were made in ‘Lábatlan, among other [towns]’.
