Comment: Re: SHK 10.0123 Re: Moth, mote, mought, moat
A line went astray in my message of 22 January. The sentences in
question should read:
As far as I am aware the Old-Spelling Oxford Shakespeare always retains
copy-text "moth". When it is modernized to "mote" in the
Modern-Spelling edition, the change is just that, a modernization, as
with "wracke" to "wreck".
