Citations of <i>hut</i> in the <i>Oxford English Dictionary</i> are substantially ante-dated by occurrences of the word in the place-names Hutfall and The Hutt. The place-name evidence also demonstrates that the sense ''a dwelling of ruder and meaner construction . . . than a house'' is earlier than the sense ''a wooden structure for the temporary housing of troops''.
