Greetings. I've been searching the web for someone who could teach me
old english grammar and came across your webpage. You see I'm a modern
writer trying to learn the use of shakespearean manner of writing. In
vain I have searched and searched furthermore.
It seems that the old art of sonnets and poetry are now lost. What I
wish to learn are the proper use of words like THY, THOU and THINE. Or
perhaps the write usage of ST and TH on words. For instance, can I use
DOTH instead of DOST or HATH instead of HAST? I would appreciate any
help you could possibly provide me. Thanks so very much.
