What is a Slugabed?
Slugabed is a relatively uncommon noun meaning โ€œa person who lazily stays in bed long after the usual time for arising.โ€ The noun slug, โ€œa snaillike animal; a lazy person, sluggard,โ€ developed from Middle English slugge โ€œa lazy person; slothfulness, the sin of sloth.โ€ Slugge probably comes from Old Icelandic slลkr โ€œclumsy person,โ€ Swedish and Norwegian dialect slok โ€œlazy person,โ€ Danish slog โ€œrascal, rogue.โ€ The element โ€“aโ€“ is simply a reduced form of the Old English preposition on โ€œon, in, intoโ€; bed comes from Old English bedd, ultimately from the Proto-Indo-European root bhedh-, bhodhโ€“ โ€œto dig, bury,โ€ from which Latin derives fodere โ€œto digโ€ and fossa โ€œa ditch, trench, grooveโ€; the Celtic languages have Welsh bedd, Cornish bedh, and Breton bรฉz, all three meaning โ€œa grave.โ€ Slugabed entered English in the late 16th century.
