Etymology[edit]

From Old Occitan trencar, itself possibly from a Vulgar Latin *trinicāre (cut into three parts), from the root trini, based on duplicāre, or alternatively from an alteration of Latin truncāre. It may also derive from or be influenced by a pre-Roman, possibly Gaulish word, cf. *trincare (cut the head), or a base *trenko. Compare Occitan trencar, French trancher, Old French trenchier, Portuguese trincar and Italian troncare. Native doublet of trinxar.
