    What is the definition and pronunciation of the word "payne"?

    I've seen it from Wyatt's "Behold, love, thy power how she dispiseth!"

    "Behold, love, thy power how she dispiseth!
    My great payne how little she regardeth"

    The same as "pain" (both definition and pronunciation).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Note that this was written around 1550.

    In another version, you'll see 'grete greef' (great grief).
