This Ain't Your Daddy's English



herodthenutHerodthenut on 02/18/2006

ThisAintYourDaddysEnglish Photo It's not your granddaddy's language either. Or you great-granddaddy's. But add enough great's to it and you might find someone who used to speak Old English (or Anglo-Saxon). Modern English evolved from this, but so much has changed in the last few centuries that it's practically a foreign language. See if you can pick out the Modern English translation of these Old English words.
