Definitions and meaning of vole

vole

Etymology 1

Borrowed from Norn [Term?], from Old Norse vǫllr (field), q.v. The Orkney dialectal name vole mouse, lit. "field mouse", was introduced to general English by George Barry in 1805; John Fleming in 1828 was first to refer to the creature by the epithet vole alone. Displaced earlier names for these species which also classified them as mice, e.g. short-tailed field mouse.

Interjection

  1. (informal) man, dude
Usage notes

This interjection is considered vulgar by some people, its primary meaning being "you ass"; however, it is today quite frequently used in very informal speech without any vulgar overtones, either as a friendly address or as an emphasizer; some people lard their talk with it without its having any meaning (similarly to the way some people use "fuck" in English, but "vole" is not so strong). It is often used in the form "ty vole".

Etymology 2

From Proto-Slavic with unclear origin; possibly related with German schwellen, Wulst.

Noun

vole n

  1. crop, craw (pouch-like part of the alimentary tract of some birds)
