quercin (s.xiii2/3)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: *2/ii,1462b quercus; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 2624a quercinus ]

According to the FEW ‘Lt. quercus hat in Gallien nich Fuss gefast’ (2/ii 1462b), whereas in English the adjective quercine a. appears only from the mid seventeenth century. This single Anglo-Norman attestation appears to be a Latinate hapax.
