To GRUNTLE. v.n.


To GRUNT. To GRUNTLE. v.n. [grunnio, Latin.] To murmur like
a hog.
And neigh, and bark, and grunt, and roar and burn,
Like horse, hound, hog, bear, fire, at every turn. Shakesp.
Lament, ye swine! in gruntings send your grief;
For you, like me, have lost your sole relief. Gay’s Past.
Thy brinded boars may slumber undismay’d,
Or grunt secure beneath the chesnut shade. Tickel.
The scolding quean to louder notes doth rise,
To her full pipes the grunting hog replies;
The grunting hogs alarm the neighbours round. Swift.
