r/oldenglish

A subreddit for the Old English language, the earliest attested stage of English, which was spoken in England from the 5th through the 11th centuries. Old English is not the English of Shakespeare, nor the English of Chaucer; we're talking about the language of Beowulf, spoken by the Angles, Saxons and Jutes over 1,200 years ago. Whether you're a linguist, a bibliophile, a logophile or just curious — all are welcome here!
