Sharing the knowledge

Courtesy of Rowan's mum, an awesome piece of information (and off the top of her head, something which my teacher trainees might refer to as 'mad skills' (they're so hip and down with the kids)):
Wezand in Shakespeare is from the Middle English wesand, and before that the OldEnglish w«£send, and means "throat" or "gullet", and Spenser called it a "weasand-pipe".
Fab.
