Spanish term or phrase: pristile (English or SpanGLish word)
I'm doing an academic text on economics (optimal and/or efficientland allocation between various uses) written in SPANGLISH. The word PRISTILE is used to define 'land providing utility for agents'. It's not in my dictionaries, so....? i can't really provide more context, but I'm curious - can anyone help? I can't even think of a possible misprint...

pristine
Explanation:
Have you tried 'pristino' instead of pristile? English is pristine.

My initial idea was in fact pristine; I checked pre/pro/ etc in dic and best I came up with was pristyle (architecture - area surrounded by columns). Basically, everybody has helped me to establish that it doesn't in fact exist...so back to the drawing board. Ta for help, pity we can only award points to one.

price supplement


Explanation:
This is just a guess. I searched the web using Copernic and I did't find the word in any language. The closest I got using Eurodicautom was the Danish word "pristillaeg" meaning "price supplement" or "surcharge".I also found the Danish word "pristilsagn" meaning "price undertaking", whatever that means. Suerte.
