Is 'olden' a proper English word?
Confused about the validity of the word 'olden'? Find advice from experts on this page.
Nowadays, in Forum section, I notice abundant use of the word 'olden' in many posts and responses. Generally many Members use this to say 'olden days'. However, I feel that there is no such word ('olden') in English, It has been created by Indians to rhyme with the word 'golden'.
I would like to know if 'olden' is a proper English word, or not. Or, is my opinion correct? Has this word been created to rhyme with 'golden'?
I request Members to give factual information in this regard.
