drynce-lēan, n.n: ‘drink-reward’, perhaps related to Old Norse drekkulaun ‘grant of land by a lord in recompense for a vassal’s hospitality’, or the customary entertainment offered by a lord to his tenants, or the purchase of a drink to mark the closing of a contract. (DRUN-chuh-LAY-ahn / ˈdɹɝn-tʃə-ˌleːan)
