On erlyF.7.414: erly, "earthly." This spelling appears also at 11.190 and 16.151. The scribe elsewhere writes erthely (4.201, 15.96), and his usual form is erthe (38 instances to 3 of erþe). Though F alone among B witnesses has a form of erþly at this point, several C manuscripts read worldliche. See A. V. C. Schmidt, Piers Plowman: A Parallel-Text Edition ....
