The verb "benote" meaning "use" or "consume", said to be from Middle English benoten (“to make use of”), from Old English benotian (“to use, consume”), equivalent to be- + note (see note; cognate with German benutzen (“to use”)) appears to be Middle-English only. It has been removed from this English entry as RFV-failed. - -sche (discuss) 20:02, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
