usler1 (1121-35)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 14,75b ustulare; Gdf: 8,123a usler; GdfC: ; TL: 11,35 uller 2; DEAF: ; DMF:  uller 2; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 3563c urere /3568b ustulare ]
husler;  uler,  uller,  uiller  

The word is generally synonymous with hasler and bruler. The former, although somewhat similar in form, has a different etymology (assulare, FEW 25,575b). The latter, on the other hand, derives from the same Latin etymon as usler, ustulare (which is itself a diminutive form of urerer, i.e. ‘to burn a little’), with the addition of a vernacular br- prefix; cf. FEW 14,81.
