    Wouldn't the archaic one be: There are but a few men who don't know that?

    Thanks for the feedback. I didn't know the original sentence to be possible/correct.

    > There are few men but know that.

    But that sounds... wrong.

    > > There are few men but know that.
    >
    > But that sounds... wrong.

    Newsflash: People a couple of hundred years ago didn't speak the same as we do.

    Paul, I demand that you cite a source where such a speaking pattern is recognized. I also demand the opinion of an expert (and nothing less will do!)

    Well, as long as you remember the archaic tags...

    I went ahead and listened to my heart, but as it was -135 years old at the time of that supposed usage, there was little constructive information derived.
