Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle English auntelere, hauntelere, from Old French antoillier (antler, horn), of unknown origin. The attempted explanation deriving from an unattested Latin *(rarum) ante ocularis (branch before the eyes), seems doubtful, as no other Romance language has a similar word of such formation.

Noun[edit]

antler (plural antlers)

  1. A branching and bony structure on the head of deer, moose and elk, normally in pairs. They are grown and shed each year. (Compare with horn, which is generally not shed.)
    While hiking in the woods, I found an antler from a deer.
