“dull and heavy,” 1848, American English, perhaps from Dutch log “heavy, dull” + -y (2); cf. Middle Low German luggich “sleepy, sluggish.” Or perhaps a variant of loggy.

word-forming element meaning “a speaking, discourse, treatise, doctrine, theory, science,” from Greek -logia (often via French -logie or Medieval Latin -logia), from root of legein “to speak;” thus, “the character or deportment of one who speaks or treats of (a certain subject);” see lecture (n.).

-logy suff.
Science; theory; study: dermatology.
