  1. Wist and words in the same group are very interesting and many of them are found in Chaucer’s writing.
    For example: (know, or to know)
    Wote. Present. sing: wote, wotest 01′ west, wote; pl.: woten, wote or wot (witen, wete). Pret. sing. I. wiste, 2. wiste, wisted, 3. wiste; pl. wisten, wiste or wist.

    Very nice conference
