I've always thought of "thrall" as "churl" or "bound peasant". Enthralled or in thrall, of course, mean "enslaved".

The female thrall that Kirk fights and woes

The "woos" comes before the "woes", jheem, and usually after the bands [but not always].

My freud.

Oh, I do like that one, jh!

My kids at school have an expression like that, but I can't think of it now. "My __________________" (It's not, of course, fault, problem, wrong....but it's very funny somehow, although not as specialized as Freud.)

"My bad"--that's it exactly, et'!!! I'll bet your kids say it at school, too, yes? It cracks me up every time I hear them say it.

But, jhemm, 'my freud' is just as good, if not better!

Thanks, et' !!

Another person on AWAD sent me this take on thrall and has said I may paste it here:

"Cedric the Saxon was noble.
He had slaves (with some legal rights) called thralls.
The thralls had to wear a collar identifying their owner.
The Jester, Wamba, and herdsman, Gurth, were both thralls,
and wore collars so they could not run away without
getting caught. Evidently thralldom wasn't all bad.
Remember Gurth risked his life to get Cedric out of
captivity at hands of Front de Boeuf. "
