Usage notes[edit]

  • In many instances where we would use the adjective "Roman" or the phrase "of Rome," the Anglo-Saxons often wrote literally "of the Romans": Rōmāna rīċe ("the Roman Empire"), Rōmāna cāsere ("the Roman emperor"), Rōmāna folc ("the people of Rome"), Rōmāna bisċop ("the bishop of Rome"). This was consistent with the usage of other ethnonyms: Engla cwēn ("the queen of England", literally "the queen of the English"), Crēca hēahburg ("the capital of Greece", literally "the capital of the Greeks"), etc.
