I've removed GRR Martin's A Song Of Ice And Fire.
-"Wroth" as "anger" is attested in http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14568/14568-h/14568-h.htm, which uses "with great wroth". The editorial 'with no historical precedent' of the deleted entry would appear to be false on face.
-Using 'mislike' instead of 'dislike' would seem to be a really weak basis for invoking this trope.
I heard that even the King James Version bible was quite "olde englishe" for its own time. Is that true?
This is true, and the page's current version gives the wrong reason for calling God "thou". At the time of the KJV, the you-vs-thou distinction was formal-vs-informal, but before then it had once been plural-vs-singular, a distinction lost in modern English except in non-standard words like "youse". Hence God is "thou" not out of informality, but out of singularity.
So, in example lists, does this trope go under Y or O?
I'd put it under Y. Although "ye" was a form of "the", it is now seen as special enough that I wouldn't ignore it for alphabetisation purposes.
