History và Etymology for lot

Noun (1)

Middle English lot, lott "object used khổng lồ decide a matter by chance, decision by the use of such objects, what one receives through such a decision, destiny, mô tả," going back to lớn Old English hlot, going back to Germanic *hluta- (whence also Old Frisian hlot, lot "lot," Old High German hluz, Old Norse hlutr), noun derivative from a verb *hleutan- "to cast lots" (whence Old English hlēotan "khổng lồ cast lots, obtain, gain as one"s lot," Old Saxon hliotan "to obtain," Old High German liozan "to lớn cast lots," Old Norse hjlóta "lớn get by lot, obtain, undergo"), of uncertain origin

Note: An o-grade ablaut derivative is evident in Old English hlȳt, hlīet "lot, tóm tắt," Old Saxon hlōt, Old High German hlōz, Old Norse hlautr (conflated with a different word meaning "blood sacrifice"), Gothic hlauts. The Germanic verb has been compared with Lithuanian kliū́ti "to lớn get caught on, bump into lớn, hinder," kliudýti "to bump into, meet, hinder," Old Church Slavic ključiti sę "to happen, come to pass," but the proposed semantic connection is tenuous.
