pin2 (s.xiii1)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 12,181a spina; Gdf: 6,165b pine 2; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF:  pine 2; TLF: ; OED:  pin n.1; MED:  pin n.; DMLBS: 2285c pinna ]
pl. pinnis  

While possibly an aphetic form of espine (cf. DMF and FEW), the word in Anglo-Norman is more likely to be a borrowing from English (Old English pin), which itself is believed to derive from Classical Latin pinna ('feather', see penne1).
