Just adding the quotes for the rfq seemed out of place without the meanings for the quotes ... if I add one or two of the defs, I might as well add them all so I made it a full entry. Now those reading older texts can find the meaning of the word. --AnWulf ... Ferþu Hal! 20:46, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Blimey, that little entry has certainly grown in a few days. It's like that Star Trek episode where Deanna Troi has a baby. Good job. Equinox 20:52, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, our three citations are all before 1500, and Wiktionary:AEN#Etymology says that would be Middle English. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:59, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
Mm. Practically all of the Middle English terms I've added from Webster 1913 have a Chaucer citation (or an "rfquotek|Chaucer") so they will be trivially findable when someone can be bothered to make a bot do it. Equinox 21:01, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
And again to repeat myself, almost anything citable in Late Middle English is gonna cross over into early Modern English. Same goes the the Middle French texts I've read circa 1550, where Modern French is from 1600 onwards. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:08, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
