The critic is trying to say that people or other people do not really know the meaning to elegy. Some try to say that it means a mournful, or a lament for the dead, but the debate of the word in not successful.
To me I think the author is correct because people do not the real meaning of elegy. I mean Old English is very different from English. The goal of the source is to tell you that some people don’t really know the meaning of elegy.
It fits my research because it tells how people don’t know the meaning. Yes the source was very helpful because I got the meaning of elegy. I’m kind of in between how I feel about how I feel about it because I really don’t know the meaning but the internet says it means a lament for the dead.

Sometimes say that those of us who work in this area really don’t understand even the language of the texts we study. The problem with our knowledge of Old English, is not so much that we do not know the language but that our knowledge of it reflects that we can’t read or even speak it.
To me I think the author is right because people really don’t even know Old English. Especially when you are reading it. It really doesn’t make sense Yes the source was useful, and reliable. The goal of the source is to tell people that people really don’t know Old English.
It fits my research because it tells how people don’t know Old English. Yes the source was very helpful because the people who study Old English don’t get it either. I’m kind of on the authors’ side because I don’t know Old English, and I don’t know anyone who knows it. Database:
