First Lesson - Greetings

Greetings - 'tis a very important subject to cover, as folk did not say Hi, Hello, Bye etc etc. So here is a list of greetings to read and practice (WARNING -> there may be several Tudor greetings to one of our modern greetings):

Hello - Good day
- Good morro (for mornings only)

Goodbye - Fare thee well
- God give you good day
- See you anon
- God give you good speed

Aye, verily. I would certainly be interested in some more Tudorian English, as it always might come in handy.

So, Merrybegot, pray thee tarry not, and I beseech thee: bid me more.

Maybe something to add to the roleplaying academy in the future? I'll suggest it and hopefully there's someone else with the necessary skills.
PS: Althea: absolutely love your banner

I'm sure I could perhaps give a few more examples, as I like speaking archaically. The only one I can think of now is Permit --> suffer "I shall not suffer thee to do that"

If anyone is interested, here is "They Flee From Me" by Sir Thomas Wyatt in old spelling

They fle from me, that sometyme did me seke
With naked fote, stalking in my chambre.
I have seen theirn gentill, tame, and meke,
That nowe are wyld, and do not remembre
That sometyme they put theimself in daunger
To take bred at my hand; and nowe they raunge
Besely seking with a continuell chaunge.

Thancked be fortune, it hath ben othrewise
Twenty tymes better; but ons, in speciall,
In thyn arraye, after a pleasaunt gyse,
When her lose gowne from her shoulders did fall,
And she me caught in her armes long and small,
Therewith all swetely did me kysse,
And softely saide: "Dere hert, howe like you this?"

It was no dreme: I lay brode waking.
But all is torned, thorough my gentilnes,
Into a straunge fasshion of forsaking;
And I have leve to goo of her goodness,
And she also to use new fangilnes:
But syns that I so kyndely am served,
I would fain knowe what she hath deserved.
Image
...nú einki verður alt, einki eg tær gav.

Havsins hjarta slær djúpt her.
