ETYMOLOGY & EXAMPLE
E-CEN lists EFFRAYABLE with the etymology, from effray + -able
E-HUN lists EFFRAYABLE, EFFRAIABLE with the etymology, from French effrayable
E-BAI (1675 edition) lists EFFRAIABLE with the etymology, from French effroyable
E-NED only lists EFFROYABLE, and EFFRAJABLE which it suggests is a misprint for EFFROYABLE
The only example given for the word is from Gideon Harvey's 'Advice Against the Plague.'
E-NED however shows 'effrajable'
(Note the different endings of the two examples)
So, which is it - effrayable or effroyable?
(E-NED is the only dictionary listing 'effroyable')
Until I can find any further examples, I'm staying with EFFRAYABLE for the time being,
as I think it's quite possible that E-NED's 'effrajable' could be a misprint for ''effraiable'.
Any comments, further reference, etc. on this word would be greatly appreciated.
