Default Re: Shakespearean English

Oddly enough, I'm watching an episode of Transformers where some of the Transformers go back to Camelot (around AD 540, according to the episode) and encounter people speaking--you guessed it--Modern English with "thees" and "thous." Apparently it was a pretty widespread phenomenon back in the day.
