    Hi Max4677- I can't find a reference to trub in either the OED or dictionary.com that is not in reference to a proper name of Truffle, or proper name for a city in Sweden.

    Hi jace26- Wicca is a proper noun, so not eligible.

    This word doesn't usually appear in our free dictionary, but the definition from our premium Unabridged Dictionary is offered here on a limited basis. Note that some information is displayed differently in the Unabridged.

    *Note* I got to that entry by putting "define trub" (no quotes) into Google's search box and then clicking on the 4th (as of now) hit to get it to show the unabridged definition.  It seems if you click the link above, you may be taken to a MW page that says you need to sign up to view the words in unabridged dictionary.
