renniewalker commented on the word feal
these examples are all wrong. in those days - the days of the writing of these example documents - the character 'f' was used to denote both the letter f and the letter s. these examples all confuse this. "feal" in the first example means the animal the seal, because in this instance the character 'f' denotes the letter s.

Thanks for your comment on feal. I've been making a list of long s examples, if you find any others you'd like to add.
Hope you're enjoying the site!
