<p>This isn't Old English, this is English with some archaic isms. It looks more like Shakespeare's English than Old English. Old English was an inflected language spoken by the Anglo-Saxons, who came to the British Isles around 400 AD. It uses almost exclusively Germanic-stemmed vocabulary and is almost indistinguishable from today's English in both grammar, spelling and pronunciation.</p><p>Here's an example of Old English, it's a riddle in the form of a short poem:</p><p> Ic &thorn;a wiht geseah on weg feran;</p><p> heo w&aelig;s wr&aelig;tlice wundrum gegierwed.</p><p> Wundor wear&eth; on wege; w&aelig;ter wear&eth; to bane.</p><p>It translates to today's English as:<br></p><p> I saw a being travelling on its way;<br> it was adorned amazingly beautifully.<br> A marvel occurred on the road: water turned to bone.</p>
<p>You messed up thou and thy. The correct is: thou (subject) and thee (object = you.<br>Thy (before a noun starting with a consonant) and thine (before a noun starting with a vowel) = your</p>
<p>yonder:over there or afar </p><p>this is repeated.</p>tither:there<p>This is spelled thither, not tither</p>
