pasturel1 (1150-70)

[ hap]

[ FEW: 7,761a pastoralis; Gdf: 6,35c pastorelle; GdfC: 10,293c pastoral; TL: 7,470 pastoral /7,472 pastorele; DEAF:  pastoral; DMF:  pastoral / pastourelle; TLF:  pastoral / pastourelle; OED:  pastoral n. and adj.; MED:  pastoralle adj.; DMLBS: 2140a pastoralis ]
pastoral,  pastorel,  pastural,  pasturele  

While the FEW includes the sense of 'pastourelle, bucolic song' as a derivation of pastor (7,759a), the DMLBS suggests that this particular sense derives from the adjectival form pastoralis, likely as a result of the abbreviated locution carmen or poema pastorale. We follow the DMLBS in considering the substantive as a derivative of the adjective and include it under pasturel1, while pasturel2 represents a diminutive form of pastor.
