    • 1862, Manuel Magariños, Ferro-carril Compostelano:
      Cada vez a cousa engorda,
      como que incha a ollos vistos,
      Pro, si incha, non estoura;
      como o pelexo enteirizo
      da castaña agüenta e fofa
      pra levála o enemincho;
      Cando máis, si algo rebenta,
      e arregaña, é o ourizo,
      pra guindar limpa a castaña
      e roer fruto tan rico
      The thing grows at every time,
      as it swells in plain sight,
      but, although it swells, it does not burst;
      as the one-piece peel
      of the soft watery chestnuts
      you take to an enemy;
      at most, if something pops
      and cracks is the burr,
      to throw clean the chestnut
      and nibble such a rich fruit
    Synonyms: esbourar, estoupar, rebentar
  2. to boom; to crack, pop
    Synonyms: estalar, estoupar
  3. first/third-person singular future subjunctive of estourar
  4. first/third-person singular personal infinitive of estourar
