1. A spoonlike utensil with three short tines like a fork.
Late 19th century: used by Edward Lear, perhaps suggested by late 16th-century rouncival, denoting a large variety of pea.
Used in a sentence:
“Having forgotten to pack his lunch, Mortimer resorted to ingurgitating condiment packets with a runcible.”
"They dined on mince and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon..."
(Edward Lear, "The Owl and The Pussycat")
