Missing adjective?[edit]

  • 1861, George Eliot, Silas Marner ((Please specify the language of the quote)), London: Penguin Books, published 1967, page 159:
    'The Squire's pretty springe, considering his weight,' said Mr Macey, 'and he stamps uncommon well.'

Here it's "springy". DTLHS (talk) 05:21, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
I think the original edition (from 1861) used "springe" however. DTLHS (talk) 05:34, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
