[romongere] (1212)


[ FEW: 23,61b muletier /*16,735b ross; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  romangre / ros (*); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  romonger n.; MED:  ro-mongour n.; DMLBS: ]
romangeour,  romanger,  romangre,  romongur;  rumangur,  rumongour  
ls(loanword: compound with M.E.)

The first element, ro, is a word for ‘horse’, also found in Continental French (cf. DMF rosse and DEAF ros), but otherwise not attested in Anglo-Norman.

The unetymological sense of ‘mule-driver’ has no equivalent in Middle English, and seems to be specific to Dial Greg satf.
