Etymology 1Edit

Variant of palanca, phalanga.

NounEdit

planca f (genitive plancae); first declension

  1. (Vulgar Latin) slat, plank
    • c. 500 CE, Palladius, Opus agriculturae I.XXI:
      Boves nitidiores fient, si focum proxime habeant et lumen intendant. Octo pedes ad spatium standi singulis boum paribus abundant et in porrectione quindecim. Plancae roboreae subponantur stationibus equorum cum stramine, ut iacentibus molle sit, stantibus durum.
      The cattle is mannered better if they have the fire close and attain light. Eight feet of room for a pair of bovines if they stand and fifteen if they lie. Oak planks should be laid into the stables with straw, so the lying flanks have it soft and the standing hooves hard.
