Statenvertaling fragment[edit]

The wording may be 1618, but the spelling has definitely been modernised. Shouldn't we use the original spelling? If so, I can provide it as my great-gran's old Bible has the original. -- Curt Woyte 09:02, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

If you can provide the a genuine 1618 bible text sure. Rex Germanus Tesi samanunga is edele unde scona 09:34, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
I can but it'll have to wait as it now transpires someone has borrowed the bit I need. -- Curt Woyte 09:55, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Proto Indo-European[edit]

I don't think the whole piece about the Proto Indo-European history is relevant nor necessary. Meursault2004 14:08, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, it give a complete image ... but it's also somewhat confusing.Whould would you suggest?Rex 16:27, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Well for a start we can look at the other articles about the history of other languages. I think that the History of the English language is a good article. Meursault2004 12:01, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

I'll do some cutting, and you tell me if you think it's an improvement okay? Rex 13:48, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

I think it is now a vast improvement over the original. It is now much more readable. Meursault2004 16:57, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
