  1. Trow a.k.a. Trousers are an item of clothing worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately. In the UK the word "pants" generally means underwear and not trousers. Shorts are similar to trousers, but with legs that come down only to around the area of the knee, higher or lower depending on the style of the garment. To distinguish them from shorts, trousers may be called "long trousers" in certain contexts such as school uniform, where tailored shorts may be called "short trousers", especially in the UK.
  2. Trow: In the folkloric traditions of the Orkney and Shetland islands, a trow is a small, troll-like fairy creature. Trows, in general, are inclined to be short of stature, ugly and both shy and mischievous in nature. Like the troll of Scandinavian legend, with which the trow shares many similarities, trows are nocturnal creatures; venturing out of their 'trowie knowes' solely in the evening, they often enter households as the inhabitants sleep. Trows traditionally have a fondness for music, and folktales tell of their habit of kidnapping musicians or luring them to their dens.
  3. Trow: A trow was a type of cargo boat found in the past on the rivers Severn and Wye in Great Britain and used to transport goods.
