revure (1268)


[ FEW: *10,184b *reexvagus; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  reivure / resver (*); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
reivure,  rovure  

The word is otherwise unattested. The editor suggests the variant a rovure may mean ‘to blushing point / red heat’ to continue the word play with ardaument but ultimately suggests a connection with rever1. Matsumura (ZrP 114 p.557) suggests it may be a form of reverie1.
