Vorlauf is derived from the German verb vorlaufen which means to "run ahead". In brewing this is when you initially run off wort from your lauter tun into a vessel called a grant. You then keep recirculating the runnings from the grant back on top of the grain bed until the wort begins to run clear. You can now proceed with a normal sparge.

wikipedia is on my Humor list. As the founder of wikipedia puts it, "I can't believe people use this for college papers without checking the references."

vorlauf. (fogh’-lawf)
German term for recirculation of wort through the grain bed.
[Not exactly right, but close.]
