@benhamill Alternately, you could make a case for "wought" a la brought.
This also made me wonder if "wrought" is somehow derived from an alternate past tense of "wring" (it almost works!) but alas, it seems the two are not related.
@cincodenada You're looking for the verb "wright", I believe. As in a shipwright... someone who wrights ships.
@benhamill Well I'll be damned, so I am, I'd never made that connection before! Thanks!
And to think I was just reading about fossil words, which is when obsolete words get preserved in expressions or compounds like this. Neato!
