    Archaic Words For Teacher?

    Discussion in 'Research' started by frigocc, Sep 24, 2019.

    Basically, don't have the money for Oxford English, so can't find it myself. Looking for a list of archaic words that are synonymous with teacher. Ones that are incredibly uncommon.

    Also might need their pronunciation, lol. How do you say "larew?"

    I don't have Oxford English either - just googled and got relinked to wikipedia.

    According to International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA): /ˈlɔːriu̯/
    But it may also be pronounced: ˈlɑːrøːw

    Teachers weren't usually referred to as teachers. Instead, you might just call them Master /Mentor or something like that. Not rare, but probably more likely.

    I'm not really sure how to read that phonetic alphabet, hence why I'm asking. Additionally, for what I'm trying to do, it has to be an archaic synonym for teacher.

    I'd try speaking something like "la" (basically pronounced french) and row (actually the crossed o would rather be spoken like ö in german but I can't think of an english equal) ...

    'm out when it comes to synonymes for teacher.

    I think I figured it out. I also looked up old terms that should be used for a school. Phrontistery. Works for exactly what I need it to.

    If you hover your mouse over a character in question on Wikipedia, it will pop up a pronunciation guide for that phonetic symbol using an common English word.

    I'm pretty sure it's a male honorific in Norse to note someone of greater experience or age, like a teacher
