rastuer (c.1250)


[ FEW: *10,90a *rasitoria; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  rastoire (*); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
rastouer,  rastuher,  rastuwer;  rasture;  ratuer ,  retuer  

While this rare word’s etymon is probably *rasitoria (‘streichmass’, i.e. ‘levelled measure’), there may have been some influence, semantically rather than formally, from rastellus (cf. rastel: ‘rake’).
