Sol[adiht fruman]

(Well, I write this in modern english...) ("cumande-tide-englisc" or whatever "future english" would be... @@) Somebody have written "sol" in this article. I know it is a common word in modern scandinavian languages, and I believe it existed in old norse, as well, but is it really attested in anglo-saxon, or is it the latin word? Just wondering... Maybe we could add "in latin, and also danish tongue(?) sol", or something like that. Or is danish tongue a more modern concept?

"Sol" is the Latin word. It is in the article because that is the internationally-recognized name of the Sun, as a star. This is to distinguish "the Sun" from "a sun". --Saforrest
OK, thanks...

Billionan[adiht fruman]

... and another word billionan:

  • Þe ƿord ;·) was invented centuries after English evolved away from this form.
  • Þe orginially meant (and some still take it to mean) a million million.

Thus why are we using it to mean a thousand million and why are we even using it at all? Jimp 23:43, 6 Wēodmōnaþ 2011 (UTC)

I wouldn't mind changing it, but I might cause someone some offense. Benmoreandflower.JPG  Ƿes hāl!   Fiordland Lake Marian.jpg 05:11, 9 Wēodmōnaþ 2011 (UTC)
