Bright reference[edit]

I have no problem with the way the quote from Bright has been refactored -- sorry it took a brief edit war, but at least the end result is an improved article.

I think probably, Mr. Bright meant to imply that the original phrase was something like "ne weorcs, na wang" (no labours, nor woe), but since he didn't actually say this, that would be going too far. Cheers, Til Eulenspiegel (talk) 21:42, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

No problem, and I apologize if I came off as contentious, which I probably did. :)
I note that Jeep seems to be referring to this derivation when he writes that the first element may refer to a "place without toil or worries", and so it is good to have Bright's observations here. :bloodofox: (talk) 21:54, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
