Thread Name: 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean?
Subject: RE: 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean?
Just checked the DT entry Innocent Hare in case it was a typo, and the word 'relope' does appear. I can't find it in the dictionary, I only guess that it is being used to mean 'Run away' based on 'Lope' (to jump or run) and re-lope, to jump or run back the way the hare came.
