Medieval language

I’ve had the intention of building this page out with interesting terms that relate to my fiction books.

The first I chose, folkmoot, is in order to explore the name of the publishing company, Rural Scholar Press. It was in researching “rural” that I came across the word.

folk·moot

(fōk′mo͞ot′) or folk·mote (-mōt′)

n. A general assembly of the people of a town, district, or shire in medieval England.

[Middle English, from Old English folcmōt : folc, folk; see folk + mōt, meeting.]
Discussion is invited and welcome! It might get me to take this page further.
