There were originally nine instances of the main scribe writing a denasalised preterite subjunctive in book three of O and, in five of these cases, the glossator has added a scratched gloss. In the examples below we see what the main scribe originally wrote, and the glossator’s response: (22)  cwædon  hi(m) leofre wære.  hi wilnadan þæt hi þære þeode hælo beon mihteon. ‘And they said that they preferred and desired to be the saving of the people’ (f. 28v).

The manuscripts in which the texts have come down to us contain many rare forms of words, and these, especially when unique, may invite emendation to eliminate what is not easily explained.
