Summary/Abstract: The second instalment of this series of lexical notes consists of notes three and four, offering corrections to the treatment of two hapax legomena in the Dictionary of the Seventeenth-Century Written Bulgarian Language on a Vernacular Basis (2013). Note three argues that in the early modern Bulgarian version of John Chrysostom’s Life there is a noun opačina which means ‘misfortune, ordeal, hardship’ and compares the seventeenth century usage with that by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century authors. Note four shows that toitu in Mary of Egypt’s Life is the dative case form of To(v)it ‘Tobias’.
