conditional[edit]

I'd like to mention that tropical frogs live in trees, but not sure what the conditional form of the verb is (for inclusion into the 'be it tropyckal' sentence). Is the 3rd person conditional just 'eet may liue', or is it 'eet may liueþ'? Apologies if it's a silly question. -- JonsterMonster (talk) 23:23, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

'booþe'?[edit]

booþe in Middle English refers to booth. I assumed the sentence using booþe should actually be body. Anon (talk) 15:29, 6 Jul 2020 (GMT)

I believe the intention was the word cognate to and meaning 'both'; the sentence is explaining that a frog is an amphibian. Currently the article uses 'boþe'. user:H-Games~Documentation (User talk:H-Games~Documentation) 19:26, 27 June 2021 (UTC)

[edit]

I cannot find this word in any of the Middle English dictionaries I have tried. Is this just a typo of "if"? --86.50.71.100 11:17, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi, based on the context I also think whoever wrote this meant to write “if”, however since þ doesn’t exist in a standard English keyboard, I assume he did it purpose and thought it’s correct. I also didn’t find any evidence of this variation existing so I think it’s best to replace it with yif or yef. Btw, it’s highly desirable that you create an account as it will make collaboration a lot easier. -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 14:52, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
I corrected it. Thanks for noticing! -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 19:42, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
