The word runnel is “a small stream or channel”
This word came into English in the late 1500s
Background / Comments
Our word comes from the Old English word rinnan (to run). We have had two words in a row that describe streams, and that isn’t a coincidence. When our word turned up, that reminded me that I’ve been meaning to add riffle from my reading, so I did so. So, as I said, not really a coincidence.
