I was looking for origin of the word carousel, and I found the following,
One of the purposes of the Royalle Carouselle, as it was called in a patent application of 1673, was to give "sufficient instruction to all such ingenious young gentleman as desire to learne the art of perfect horsemanshipp with all the usual practices and exercises thereof".
Also in the following book, Images and cultures of law in early modern England
My Question is, have the words horsemanshipp & warr been used in writing with a double p & r consistently? Or is it that the usage reflects the way a person speaks those words ?
