Transcript of Copy of Copy of Language
The Elizabethan Era's alphabet only had 24 letters because the letters I and J were pronounced as the same letter as were the letters U and I. Another letter which resembled "Y" was used to represent the "th" sound. The word "the" was therefore written in a similar way as "ye" would in the modern day. Numbers were frequently written in lower case Roman numerals, with the last "i" in a number written as a "j". For example xxvij March (March 28). The written form of Elizabethan Numbers also cause confusion in translation. The history of english started when the anglo-saxons invaded England after the romans left. This created Old English this was spoken throughout england for hundreds of years. The Anglo-Saxons only created words for a few simple things. They actually created 4 days of the week in honour of their Gods. Christians (597 A.D) and Vikings (C.800) came to the land of England and created 2000 new words. The Queen was very appreciating when it came to playwrights and she even had writers who wrote her plays too! The plays in the Elizabethan Era didn't accept woman to be actors in plays because they had no rights until 1660. So young men would have to play a women because they had higher pitched voices than older men. English became more popular and respected throughout the world after English was starting to spread out into different parts of the world and later on became the dominant language.
