lilt \lilt\, noun:
1. rhythmic swing or cadence.
2. a lilting song or tune.
verb:
1. to sing or play in a light, tripping, or rhythmic manner.
The origin of lilt is unknown, though it may be related to the Norwegian lilla meaning "to sing" or to the Low German lul meaning "pipe." The verb form entered English more than 300 years before the noun form, in the late 1300s.
