Alex can find good examples in his Latin-German dicitonary
"Der kleine Stowasser", pp. 292 and 293:

lassus (< *lad-tos, see paragr. 36 of the "Laut- & Formenlehre",
i.e. Phonetics & Morphology) in the same book; and cf. Greek ledeĆ­n,
Goth lats, Old High German laz, + cf. paragr. 10 & 12 of the same
"Formenlehre") = tired, flabby


laxus (adverb) = loosely, flabbily, floppily
