    • 1931, Sønderjyllands Historie fremstillet for det danske Folk, volume 1, page 189:
      Og Resultatet har været, at Tjodene i Sydslesvig — Angler og Svaver — vedvarende har kunnet raade den Flod, som aabnede Døren for dem til Vesteuropa: Ejderen.
      Consequently, the thiods in Southern Schleswig - the Angles and the Suebes - have been able to rule the river that opened the door to Western Europe: the Eider.
    • 1941, Vilhelm Lacour, Schultz Danmarkshistorie, volume 1, Copenhagen, page 342:
      Et Tjod er i flere Henseender det samme, som vi paa Nydansk kalder et Folk; men det er ikke saa omfattende som Folket og fortjener derfor sit eget Navn
      A thiod is in many ways the same as what we call a folk in Modern Danish; but is not as comprehensive as the folk, and therefore it deserves its own name.
