ALSO NOTE: THE (GLOBAL) WORD, BOKE

ENGLISH (HISTORICAL/SCHOLARLY REFERENCE): BOKE / BOOK

In titles of many English books of the 14th-16th centuries the word "Book" is spelled "Boke," and modern scholarship & commentary often maintains the original spelling in reference: e.g., Thomas Elyot's The Boke named the Governour, Juliana Berners's (?) The Boke of St. Albans, Thomas Phaer's The Boke of Chyldren, Robert Copland's The Boke of Justices of Peace, etc. The OED contains 668 occurrences of the word "boke". all but approximately a dozen are instances where the meaning is "book." (For a list and access to many of them, see Google book search.[27])

LANGUAGE & DIALECT
OTHER SPELLINGS: Robert Burns: "bock"[28] / Jane Austen's period (Regency): "bowke"[29] / ALSO: "bowk," "bolk," "byock," "bok" [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] (NOTE: MASS MEDIA SPOKEN WORDS & WEB SPELLINGS: Scottish dialect on UK television, for example [39], is heard but not spelled; hence, variations in internet spellings.)
