Betell/betold
« on: April 08, 2021, 03:13:09 AM »
I'm not sure if this is a proper word or not, although I've actually used the word in the past tense. It's not in my 2-volume 'shorter' Oxford dictionary but it's in several online dictionaries. Suitable for inclusion?

The OED lists betell as 'obsolete'.
