Hmm... for me, /raUt/ is something I would usually do with a woodworking power tool, or if I utterly defeat my opponent in battle. "Routed" with these meanings is not homophonic with "routed" meaning "directed along a route". Are these two meanings of "rout" related to one another? And/or to "route" (which, for me, is always /rout/)?
