lumber \ˈlʌm.bɚ\

  1. (Intransitif) Bouger maladroitement.
    • […] he was only apprized of the arrival of the Monkbarns division by the gee-hupping of the postilion, as the post-chaise lumbered up behind him. — (Sir Walter Scott, The Antiquary, 1816)
    • Once our ancestors got moving on two legs, they kept on walking, and that journey has continued right up to today. In a lifetime, the average person will take about 150 million steps—enough to circle Earth three times. We stroll, stride, plod, traipse, amble, saunter, shuffle, tiptoe, lumber, tromp, lope, strut and swagger. After walking all over someone, we might be asked to walk a mile in their shoes. Heroes walk on water, and geniuses are walking encyclopedias. But rarely do we humans think about walking. It has become, you might say, pedestrian. The fossils, however, reveal something else entirely. Walking is anything but ordinary. Instead it is a complex, convoluted evolutionary experiment that began with humble apes taking their first steps in Miocene forests and eventually set hominins on a path around the world. — (Jeremy DeSilva, “Walks of Life”, Scientific American, vol. 327, no. 5, novembre 2022, pages 72-81)
  2. (Transitif) Encombrer.
    • 1822, Sir Walter Scott, Peveril of the Peak
      The mean utensils, pewter measures, empty cans and casks, with which this room was lumbered, proclaimed it that of the host, who slept surrounded by his professional implements of hospitality and stock-in-trade.
