poutre (s.xii4/4)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 9,530a pulliter; Gdf: 6,360a poutre; GdfC: 10,397a poutre; TL: 7,1673 poutre; DEAF:  poutre; DMF:  poutre; TLF:  poutre; OED:  pautre n.; MED:  pautre n.; DMLBS: 2590c putura 2 ]
poustre,  pantre (l. pautre)  204  

According to the OED (Third Edition, 2005), the sense ‘beam, joist’ is a transferred use of ‘filly’, rather than a separate word. Consequently AND1’s two separate articles are now treated as one.
