Definition
to tie so as to limit the boundaries of movement; or the rope or other material used to do the tying
  • For Lord Hamlet, Believe so much in him, that he is young; And with a larger tether may he walk Than may be given you: in few, Ophelia, Do not believe his vows; for they are brokers,— Not of that dye which their investments show, But mere implorators of unholy suits, Breathing like sanctified and pious bawds, The better to beguile.
    1.3 — Act 1 Scene 3 — A room in Polonius's house (92% in)
