Türkische aussprache lʌşîs
Etymologie [ l&-sh&s ] (adjective.) 15th century. From Early Modern English lushious (--Spenser), lussyouse (--Palsgrave) "luscious, richly sweet, delicious", of uncertain origin. Believed to be a corruption of earlier *lustious from lusty (“pleasant, delicious”) + -ous, due to the spelling. Shakespeare uses both lush (short for lushious) and lusty in the selfsame sense: 'How lush and lusty the grass looks'. --Temp. ii. I.52. Alternative etymology connects luscious to a Middle English term: lucius, an alteration of licious, believed to be a shortening of delicious. See delicious.
