Hey all,
I need to translate an Old English text into Present-Day English. I'm a German native speaker and I'm stuck with the following words. Does anybody mind helping me with the translation of the following words?
Thank you so much.

I might be recognize the categories of the following words:

Adjective: miċel

    My Old English is not great, but I'll give it a shot:

    miċel = much (and probably also "large"?) - any dictionary should contain this


    It might help further to post some parts of the text to place these words in context.

    It's more often spelt "mycel" and usually means "large" or ''great", but sometimes "a large amount of" which evolved into modern "much".
