BaskervilleOldFacSCD – We haven’t had much for snow this far this year, but there’s plenty of time to change that. One thing that almost always catches my eye is the wording of the King James Version of the Bible. When they were talking about the flood, it said, “The fountains of the deep broke open.” That makes me think of Old Faithful, but not just one, maybe one hundred, there’s no way to know. The words were common to everybody when it was in its early days of use. The King James was my first Bible, so it isn’t difficult for me to understand. Of Course, I know that hither and thither are the old english equivalents of here and there. The English may believe that Americans have butchered the english language, but even their english is a far cry from the old englsih that is annoying to most americans. After all, the forsooths, thees, thys, and thous can only be so repetative. There are people who can listen to you talk for five or so minutes and then tell you exactly where you’ve lived. I wonder if most people learn the language around their area, but might wish to talk somewhat differently. Most texans don’t realize that they’ve an accent until they meet somebody without one. Christians should have a sort of accent, so that when the talk with others, people automatically recognize them as Christians. They should talk so differently that people aren’t quite sure what to make of it.
