striper (s.xiii3/4)


[FEW: *17,366b *trippon; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  treper; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

This word may be an aphetic form of the otherwise unattested verb *estriper (a prefixed derivative of treper2). Alternatively, it may be related to English strip v.2 (‘to move swiftly’), which is of obscure origin too.
