- noun a coarse, slovenly and/or lazy individual. This word had existed for many years in Anglo-Irish speech where it denoted a fat, slow child (probably from slab, Irish Gaelic for mud). Coincidentally a similar word, apparently of Slavonic origin and rendered as zhlub or shlub, exists in Yiddish. It means an uncouth person, but is probably derived from a root form related to the Czech zlobit, meaning to get angry.
