Middle English word dating back to the early 1400s meaning "a dirty, untidy, or slovenly woman" which is also the origin of the modern word "slut
" which means "a promiscuous woman."
This etymological association is likely due to the fact that promiscuity and filth were closely associated in times before contraception and modern hygienic practices were common. Also, prostitution was a profession undertaken mostly by lower class individuals living in poverty and thus associated with dirtiness so it was common for a prostitute
to also be a slutte
These associations can even be seen today in images of the modern "slut
" which is usually portrayed in the form of a slovenly and scantily dressed woman.
A more classy, educated way of saying and spelling the word "Slut."
A derogatory term.
