This should probably be moved to Odin, Vili and Ve or similar, because any discussion of Vili and Ve will actually be a discussion of that triad. dab (𒁳) 14:52, 20 December 2007 (UTC)


Is it me, or did I miss the references in this article? Is the alliteration in proto-norse an accepted fact, or is it original research? Likewise, the references to the Exeter book strike strongly of original research — the entire Exeter book is alliterative, so it's no surprise to find a sentence with Woden which alliterates with other Ws. Emendations to suit a theory are generally highly discouraged in Old English studies.Martin Turner (talk) 23:30, 2 February 2008 (UTC) Also note that the bibliography (which is not connected to the text) is only of out-of-date studies, from the period when emendations to suit theories were rife.Martin Turner (talk) 23:32, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Your criticism is valid and I tend to find that Wikipedia has a very severe problem with such original research in these areas. References, people - solid, referable, reputable references! If you can correct it, you are most welcome to. :bloodofox: (talk) 12:19, 3 February 2008 (UTC)
While I am not completely certain about the alliteration in Proto-Norse, it did alliterate in Proto-Germanic. I've added a citation to Simek that roughly states such, but the the line likely needs to be rewritten. My current revision adds links to Wiktionary as well. Yugure (talk) 03:27, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
