ortil2 (c.1300)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 4,489b hortus; Gdf: 4,494b hortel; GdfC: ; TL: 6,1314 ortel; DEAF:  ort 2 (ortel); DMF:  hortel; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 1175b hortulus ]

This substantive is rare in Anglo-Norman, based on the Latin diminutive of hortus, i.e. hortulus. In this single attestation it may even be an error for the more common word cortil, although such an emendation is not necessary.
