Wezand definitions

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

WEZAND, for weasand. [See the latter.] [Note--In words beginning with wh, the letter h, or aspirate, when both letters are pronounced, precedes the sound of w. Thus what, when, are pronounced hwat, hwen. So they were written by our ancestors, and so they ought to be written still, as they are by the Danes and Swedes.]

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Weasand Wea"sand, n. [OE. wesand, AS. w[=a]send; akin to OFries. w[=a]sende, w[=a]sande; cf. OHG. weisunt.] The windpipe; -- called also, formerly, wesil. [Formerly, written also, wesand, and wezand.] Cut his weasand with thy knife. --Shak.

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Wezand We"zand, n. See Weasand. [Obs.]
