dengin (c.1230)


[FEW: ; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

In this context, the term is more likely to be a rendering of daingean – the Irish word for ‘stronghold’ – than an otherwise unattested variant spelling of donjun (cf. Dermot2 p.144).


1(Irish)  mil. archit.stronghold, fort
