cruel is trouca

trouca = cruel (Lhaesine pronunciation = TROO-kuh) (noun) (some things Google found for "trouca": an uncommon to rare term; rue du Pont Trouca and Roc Trouca in Avignon, France; Goera trouca is a species of some kind of insect-like critter; name on a UK dinner/dating site; Baou Trouca appears in some French place names)

In hindsight, after doing this Lhaesine conlang word, I wonder if I had the English words "truculent" (savage, ferocious) and "truncheon" (club, staff, baton) in the back of my mind.
