"miller" isn't exactly in common usage, either. The Sherall probably have a word for knight, as it's fairly common in fantasy literature, but not for miller; in a reading translation (as opposed to a scholarly or literal translation), it would probably be rendered as baker or farmer. -- David Starner - Ic sæt me on anum leahtrice, ða com heo and bát me!
