I wish we still spaketh like KA.

whosoever pulleth the wool

whosover pulleth thy plonker

Emotion: wink
gah...if you're gonna try to use archaic forms like that, get it right >>
the -th ending is only for the third person singular

here is an example using the verb "to pull"
1st sing: "I pull"
2nd sing: "thou pullest"
3rd sing: "he/she/it pulleth"
1st plural: "we pull"
2nd plural: "you pull"
3rd plural "they pull"

it sounds********* when people try to just that the "-th" onto the end of every other wording or something like that

The "we speaketh" that occurs earlier in the thread -- a post that is more than two years old, by the way -- was a deliberate joke, and not the result of ignorance. Emotion: smile

After the English king dies leaving no heir, in the churchyard of a cathedral in London, a sword appears embedded in a stone inscribed, "Who so pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rightwise king born of England." Although many try, no one can budge the sword from the stone.

Translated into modern English:-
Whoever pulls out this sword from this stone....
thank you for the answer, i needed it too. Emotion: smile
