'Thine' 'thou' 'lest' 'goest' 'quickeneth' 'hasten' In this day and age, you see these and other words all the time, usually in jest (there's another one) you might associate these words with something medieval, conjures up images of monarchy and armor for me. But defore the current dialect of English, there was Middle and Old English (Anglo-Saxon) which even before that spanded about a thousand years of West-Frisian....what I mean is that these ancient dialects can still be largely comprehended by most native English speakers TODAY despite their odd archaic syntax and structure, being more closely related to modern German than modern English. We all know these word and some use them in conjunction with their locale dialect at present. If you're stoned, this might present a confounding experience to some, to me, but whether I'm stoned or sober I cannot wrap my head around this. p.s - english is the only language besides the Scandinavian languages that can be understood by dialects long since extinct.
