Etymology[edit]

From Middle English auntelere, hauntelere, from Old French antoillier (antler, horn), from ante- (in front of) +‎ oillier (oil (eye) +‎ -ier (a suffix indicating location)), possibly from an unattested Latin *anteocularis (before the eye).

Pronunciation[edit]

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.)
