  • From By Hook or By Crook by David Crystal -- in an account of an old man who'd been a coal miner in Durham, and remembered the dialect they used in the pits: "In his account he used several general words from the local dialect, such as grathely ('tidy') and ettle ('arrange'), both Old Norse words that came into English in the Middle Ages" (p 86).
