toriere (s.xiii2)


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

The definition is based on the meaning of the rare Latin word (see DMLBS obvolutorium 1992b). The Anglo-Norman term lacks an etymological explanation and may be a transmission error for tonel or tendriere, both denoting a net for catching birds (see also TLL i 230 n.157).


1ven.enclosure for catching birds
( MS: s.xiii2 )  hoc obvolutorium: toriere  i 230
