ᴹQ. lapse n. “babe” (Category: Infant)
A noun in The Etymologies of the 1930s glossed “babe” derived from the root ᴹ√LAP (Ety/LAP). The root was unglossed in The Etymologies, but in notes both before and after the 1930s this root had glosses like “enfold” and “fold”, so perhaps lapse meant something like “*swaddled one”; hat-tip to Lokyt for this suggestion.
