A couple of Old English words that are there in names but I don't think anybody uses as words in standard English - (they may be used in various dialects, so I can't say they aren't used)

cole - cabbage - as in coleslaw, kale, cauliflower.


wort - plant, herb - as in St John's Wort, liverwort, ragwort, milkwort

colewort = kale = used to make buzz-saw blade salad.
The hogs won't even eat it.
