Old English Speaking Thread
You don't need to speak old English or medieval English fluently. You only need to know enough to speak.

*\/Old English\/*
"We'll have a jolly good time eh wot?"

*\/Medieval English\/*
"Thou hast insulted me for the last time, knave!"

Just try it, you'll probably get hooked on it pretty quick.

Re: Old English Speaking Thread
Oy, Illusions of Sand. From whither doth thou hail (XD I'll never get the hang of this)? And to find that thee be a Christian... Pray do pray for me. I have grave need of it. And may thy faith never be lost from you; the world we live in has great need of it.

Oh the pain of youth! Oh I cannot!! This cannot!! Oh the heavens wither, the deeps of hell become shallow!! I am leaving!!! I don't even understand what i'm saying! LOL!

Re: Old English Speaking Thread
hi folks. this is the true old english:

HWÆT, WE GAR-DEna in geardagum,
þeodcyninga þrym gefrunon,
hu ða æþelingas ellen fremedon!
oft Scyld Scefing sceaþena þreatum,
monegum mægþum meodosetla ofteah,
egsode eorlas, syððanærest wearð
feasceaft funden; he þæs frofre gebad,
weox under wolcnum weorðmyndum þah,
oð þæt him æghwylc ymbsittendra
ofer hronrade hyran scolde,
gomban gyldan; þæt wæs god cyning!
Ðæm eafera wæs æfter cenned
geong in geardum, þone God sende
folce to frofre; fyrenðearfe ongeat,
þe hie ær drugon aldorlease
lange hwile; him þæs Liffrea,
wuldres Wealdend woroldare forgeaf,
Beowulf wæs breme --- blæd wide sprang---
Scyldes eafera Scedelandum in.
Swa sceal geong guma gode gewyrcean,
fromum feohgiftumon fæder bearme,
