Another double-yoker noted by . Although this one sometimes makes surprising sense, I’m slotting it under reshapings because it doesn’t always make great sense. “Let no man put us under” does sometimes seem to imply “let us keep our freedom”. “Let not man put asunder” is from two places in the KJ Bible, and is part of the traditional Christian marriage ceremony. Other contexts are more difficult to interpret.
