tro2 (1121-35)


This word is problematic. It may be related to ME trough, and looks like a non-diminutive form of troet (q.v.), which it is found in proximity to in Best, seemingly the only source for either word. See the commentary to troet.


1pack-saddle, or saddle-bag, possibly so called because of its resemblance in shape to a trough (?)
