Date of quote[edit]

Hello, in the first quote, source is "1711, Jonathan Swift, The Fable of Midas, in The Works of Jonathan Swift, D.D., Vol XII, Sir Walter Scott, ed., Edinburgh: Archibald Constable and Co., 1824, pages 302-5". Two dates appear: 1711 and 1824. What is the right? Pamputt 06:34, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Very probably 1711 is correct for when Swift wrote it and 1824 as the publication date of the edition edited by Scott. They match within the lives of Swift and Scott. Dingo1729 18:33, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Manx and adjective[edit]

Hello, in Manx section, it is written that jeer is an adjective. However, "indeed, actually, truely, ..." are adverbs. Is it correct? Pamputt 06:43, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
