  • From Latin, lapsare, to slip or stumble, hence "the fall".

  • I guess it means the fall of man - in the beginning - from the time of the paradise and the bad egg.. eh... sorry, apple, what Eve found from the very, very bad tree. This also might imply to the fall of women, too. Phew, thank god, the women are on the rise now, more than ever. Have you noticed?

    Lapsus, in Finnish, on the other hand, means "mistake".
