'Eagles' cliff' v. earn , clif . Arncliffe is a large, steep, wooded bank. The DB forms Gerne - and Lerne - (L is an error for I , Zachrisson, Mélanges de Philologie offerts à M. Johan Vising , Göteborg, 1925, p. 191) arise from the shifting of the stress in OE éa to the second element of the diphthong (cf. Yearsley 193infra ).
