peple1 (s.xiiiin)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: ; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 2185b pepulus ]

Although formally similar to pople2 (‘poplar-tree’) (and even treated as a single entry in AND1), the existence of separate etyma in medieval Latin confirms that these are two different types of tree.
