The Anglish Moot

The Old Friesish tung was the West Theedish tung spoken between the eightth and sixteenth yearhundreds, by the folk who, from their olden homes in northern Theechland and Denmark, had settled in the ground between the Rine and Elb eas on the Quidlandish North Sea strand in the H4th & H5th. The tung of the earlier folk living in the landship (the Friesish nameknownly told of by Tacitus) is not born witness to. Old Friesish became Middle Friesish spoken from the sixteenth to the H19th.

Throughout the whole of the Middle Eldths, the Fryslân streched from the ground around Bruges, in what is now Belgland, to the ea Weser, in northern Theechland. At that time, the Friesish tung was spoken along the whole southern North Sea strand. Today this landship is sometimes spoken of as Greater Friesland or Frisia Magna, and many of the grounds within it still look up to their Friesish roots, even though in most stows the Friesish tungs have been lost.

The folk from northern Theechland and Denmark who settled in England from the H4th onward, came from the same landship and spoke the same tung as the folk who had settled in Friesland. Therefore there is a near alikeness between Old Friesish and Old English. This alikeness was strengthened in the late Middle Eldths by the Ingvaeonish loudshift (Angle-Friesish nosely narrowloud law), in which Friesish and English took a share, but in which Old Saxish took a share only slightly, and none of the other West Theedish tungs.

Speechsteadlore and stavecraft[]

Also, when followed by some selflouds, the theednish k softened to a ch loud, such as the Friesish for cheese and church is tsiis and tsjerke, whereas in Netherlandish it is kaas and kerk. One rhyme homegrown to both England and Friesland shows the clear alikeness between Friesish and English: "Bread, butter and green cheese is good English and good Friesish.", which is louded more or less the same in both tungs (Friesish: "Brea, bûter, en griene tsiis is goed Ingelsk en goed Frysk.")

Old Friesish (about 1150-1550) withheld stavecraftly bendlings. Some of the writings that have been kept from this tide are from the H12th or H13th, but most are from the H14th and H15th. All in all, these writings are only lawfulsome writings. Although the earliest known written earnestnesses of Friesish are from about the H9th, there are a few earnestnesses of runish writings from the landship which are most likely older and likely in the Friesish tung. These runish writings however are mostly no more than one- or two-word markings.


There are some early Friesish names kept in Latin writings, and some runish (Futhorc) markings, but the oldest outlasting writs in Old Friesish are from the H13th, namely rikewise- and lawwrits. They show a great deal of tungish oneliness.
