Main[edit]

Have an entry request? Add it to the list. - But please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • Add glosses or brief definitions.
  • Add the part of speech, preferably using a standardized template.
  • Please indicate the gender(s) .
  • If you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them — it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

Non-letter[edit]

  • ȝeƿrit - the most common word on ang.wikipedia that uses both "ȝ" and "ƿ"
    Yogh is not a letter in Old English. Sometimes it is used to render <g> when pronounced as /j/. At Wiktionary though we just use g (or ġ in piped links), so this should be at gewrit or geƿrit. It's a variant prefixed form of writ#Old_English. Ƿidsiþ 09:59, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

  • scēo 'sky'
    sceo is only recorded once so its place in OE vocab is not very secure. And it seems (like the cognate Old Norse ský) to have meant "cloud", not "sky". Ƿidsiþ 13:23, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
    Old English words for "sky" include lyft and rodor. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 13:49, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
  • scuwa 'shade, darkness, protection'
  • Sodoma, Sodome, originally listed as entries in Sodom, I removed them because the head words weren't the same as the pagename. Anyone know of an Old English Bible? Mglovesfun (talk) 16:19, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
    Sodoma is blue-linked because of Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish entries; Sodome is blue-linked because of a French entry. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 13:49, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

  • þeatian plan, deliberate; þeat plan; might be northern ? - DCDuring TALK 01:37, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
    Mmmm....I think possibly you might mean þeahtian, þeaht. At any rate I can't find any examples of it without the H. Ƿidsiþ 08:28, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
  • þeode language
  • þingan (to invite, address)
  • trollen, from which I removed the Old English for 'no usable content', but if it exists it should obviously have an entry. Might actually be trollan, no? Mglovesfun (talk) 11:11, 24 April 2011 (UTC)
    Doesn't appear to exist. Ƿidsiþ 05:30, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
    Blue-linked because of a Swedish entry. — I.S.M.E.T.A. 13:49, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
