Wordhord is also an Anglo-Saxon word. The modern English equivalent, wordhoard, is sometimes used by those keen on Germanic heritage, and is very common in the Asatru/Odinist community. As I begin this Word of the Day feature and add the first new word to the Amerysk wordhord in many years, I thought it would be appropriate to pick wordhord.

Tha wordhord.
Æn wordhord or Aen wordhord.
Myn wordhord and thyn wordhord.
