Annotations to the Journal of Stanley Hedberg

Date of Note/View Entry Keyword(s) Note

July 18, 1926 delite

Hedberg sometimes replaces “-ight” with “-ite” such as in delite, rite, brite, lite, daylite, nite, and tonite. These words are not noted with a “[sic]” except for the word site when it is used to mean sight, and the one occurrence of the word mite when it is used to mean might.
