Why īsrēam and not īsflēte? flēte seems to be a much more common word for cream. Yes it can also mean curds, but rēam seems to be rather rare.
Possibly. On the other hand, the occurrences of flete suggest it is in the context of that which floats on the milk (which is the origin of the word) so the phrase "the cream of society" would certainly be flete. The word rēam may be more general. It gives the Scots word ream meaning "cream".Hogweard (mōtung) 08:35, 11 Wēodmōnaþ 2017 (UTC)
