Re: Aba

Your saying Wow! is my delight, my Presta dear. He wrote the King's English, choosing it over Langland's, the language used by the Court. Yes, I do enjoy them and so does your enjoying makes me happy. Seminal work, indeed, of Chaucer's. Many thanks

Well done Sir keep it simple , Folk today like instant gratification you may have the skill to integrate formal words, but I am afraid it is not a procedure that most young folks undestand it seems they are gong backwards using grunts and abreviations to communicate. Nice work.;`

Can I give you an Internet hug? You have spent a lot of time writing this at a level that I thoroughly enjoyed. Clear and concise and so easy to understand. Thank you.

Chaucer was way ahead of his time.

Wow! What an monumentally enormous job that studying that Canterbury Tales must have been for you! Yet I imagine for you, a sheer delight! Thank you, as always. The word divergent comes to mind here. Though the style was not new, writing in common English was new, correct? Melding groups and social classes, portraying them as they were, and then doing so poetically at that, is a seminal work. It seems to me that Chaucer was quite aware there are times when each has a say, in no particular order, and that, in his opinion, with the skill as portrayed by the Host, crises can be avoided. No doubt this was read and well-received at Court. :) And some things never change. I so enjoyed this post, dear Aba.
