On the Etymology of Adel
Part of book or chapter of book
- Publisher: Menningar- og minningjasjóður Mette Magnussen
A light-hearted tour of the historiography of the etymology of Adel, a parish in North Leeds, resisting the twentieth-century concensus of Old English <i>adela</i> (‘filth, dirt, dirty place; foul filth; bilge-water’ and possibly even ‘sewer, privy’) in favour of *<i>Eada-lēah</i> ('Eada's lea').
