urle (s.xii1)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 7,424a *orulare; Gdf: 5,640a orle; GdfC: ; TL: 6,1286 orle; DEAF:  ore 2 (orle) / orle / orler (orle); DMF:  orle; TLF:  orle; OED:  orle n.; MED: ; DMLBS: 3565a urla ]
horle,  hourle,  hurle;  orle,  ourle;  url; 
pl. urlis  

According to FEW, the Latin substantive ora produced the (unattested) verb *orulare, which explains the existence in Anglo-Norman of both ur and urle as quasi-synonymous substantives. Although appearing in mostly the same contexts (and as variants of each other in different manuscripts), urle seems to be attested mostly with reference to clothing.
