O alaude tinha o tampo harmonico em forma de pera como as guitarras portuguesas; as costas eram bombeadas como as do bandolim, e o cravelhame chato, inclinado para traz em angulo com o braco (...) Havia ainda um alaude pequeno so com cinco ordens (...) O nome d'este instrumento em arabe, eud, junto ao artigo definido el, deu origem a palavra elude que durante a idade media passou por muitas mudancas na Europa; as primeiras foram: leut, leuth, luit, lut, luc, lucs, lus, e luz; d'aqui nasceu liuto para os italianos, laud para os espanhois e alemaes, lut para os francezes.
