Ynglis language is just English. Why is this being called a language as if it were separate from Middle English? - Calgacus 08:59, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

Dunno, just came across it myself. The redirect to Middle English didn't seem too informative, and Northumbrian (Anglo-Saxon) looked more relevant so I've taken the liberty of changing the redirect to lead there, though to my mind that's an Angle area and the Saxon bit is a later construct to imply early unity of what became England. The Mercian Language article title, redirected from Mercian (Anglo-Saxon), suggests a rationale for the naming. ....dave souza 15:38, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
All "Inglis" means is "English"; it's like having separate articles for French and Français. Despite the fact that the Galwegian language got redirected to Galwegian Gaelic, there are enough dialects as language on wikipedia to give Northumbrian the status of language in the title, but Inglis/Ynglis is absurd, since it's just a contemporary rendering of English. - Calgacus 23:09, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Question: Can the form "Ynglis"/"Inglis" be found in the Old English period, or is it entirely Middle English? If the latter, it is doubtful if this should be redirecting to a form of Old English. - Calgacus (ΚΑΛΓΑΚΟΣ) 15px 22:13, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
