larcen - (LAHR-sen; v.) 1. To steal: specifically, as in the old common law, "to take and carry away the personal property of another with intent to deprive the owner permanently of possession thereof." (n.) 2. One who indulges in larceny, a thief. [Back formation from "larceny."]

e.g., There used to be several types of larceny---plain larceny, larceny by trick, and embezzlement. A larcen had a smorgasbord of approaches available. A burglar or a robber had no such variety. Robbery was larceny accomplished through force or fear. Burglary was "to break and enter into the dwelling house of another at night for the purpose of committing a felony therein." So it was "rob," "burgle," and "larcen" in the old days. The old definitions no long apply. Nowadays, it's all just "theft," and no archaically poetic list of defining elements.

Do You Speak American also has an extensive entry, as does Polk County (Georgia) Chat.)
