[straiage] (1363)


[FEW: *12,291a strata; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  estree 1 (*); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
ls(loanword: M.E. (?))

The word seems formally related to strai, which is reflected in the current definition. However, no further instances of it are found in Anglo-Norman, English or Latin, which suggests that the word may be a corruption of strandage, Middle English strikage n., or a similar term referring to a type of tax or charge.
