The Tongue of Angels and Shakespeare (a Look into Early Modern English)   1 comment

Greetings Babblers and Glossolalia-philes!

I posted the following to my Angelical Linguistics group, and thought you folks might find it interesting as well:

I just found this great video that lets you hear how Early Modern English might have sounded.  It comes from a group who performs Shakespeare’s plays in their “original pronunciation.”

And since I offer that Early Modern English is the basis of Angelical grammar and pronunciation (see here, here and here), then hearing the language spoken can give us an idea how Kelley and Dee might have been pronouncing the Adamic tongue.

Inspired, I went to YouTube to see what else they might have on Early Modern English, and found a wealth of great videos.

  1. Good theory. It also parallels what is observable with English written accounts of some foreign languages, where the native people had no written record. Specifically in my mind are the written guides for New Zealand Maori Language. When the written material is spoken by a modern New Zealand speaker it is completely inaccurate whereas English UK speakers, of a similar class to those who were hired as translators/recorders can pronounce the words moderately well (although with accent) – although the English language tends to use 3 letter per syllables for pronunciation yet the translators tend to use 2 letters for soundings (not unlike modern Hebrew with it’s nikkudrim)
