Tryst

Postby Flaminius » Fri Jan 13, 2006 2:37 am

1. An agreement, as between lovers, to meet at a certain time and place. 2. A meeting or meeting place that has been agreed on.

Related IE words include tree, truce, dryad, endure, trust and truth. Does this relate to Indo-European inclination for dendromancy?

As much as a broken sakura tree does for me. Could anybody suggest an etymological dictionary of French?

Flam, I don't know if this will fulfill your needs, but it might come in handy one day.
