Do you want even more Old English in your life? I recently subscribed to the Toronto Dictionary of Old English “Word of the Week”. It gives you complete entries for different words each week. You don’t have to be a paying subscriber or a member of a subscribed institution. They’ve been doing all I-words recently since they plan to publish “I” this year. (Right now the dictionary covers letters A-H.) If you prefer getting the weekly words in your email, you can sign up for that too.
What day is this weekly word? Wednesday, the same as Wordhord Wednesday!
