Why does it say "Cockney" instead of "egg"?

The second part of the word, ey, is an old word for egg, and it is the descendant of the Old English word ǣġ. The modern word "egg" is really a loanword from Old Norse. I don't know why the people that made this list thought that meant it couldn't be included, though, because it descends from the same root in any case (even from the same Germanic word). It could be included, and probably should be. —CodeCat 22:20, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
