Background / Comments
This word came into English twice; the background is the Anglo-French word lecher (to lick; to live in debauchery). In the 1300s when it first came over, it was lickerous, but by the 1600s, this word wasn’t used, and the variant lickerish was used to describe both a person who is fond of good food and the tempting food itself. Then the word was extended and because a synonym of “greedy” and “desirous”. Its use extended again to describe people and things having or suggesting lustful desires, and thus we have the current meaning.
