The headword is an adjectival derivative (nominative singular masculine) of the verb stre/fw ('turn', 'twist'). The initial lemma, illustrated in the first quotation, applies to a substantival use of the adjective: 'twisted [sc. ornament] = 'torc'. The second quotation illustrates an adjectival application of the word.
