Phrasebook? I’ve Got a TARDIS…
The Express reports that special software has been developed that enables time travellers – or anyone reading Old English texts – to understand the archaic dialogue.
Amusingly however they have used the Doctor as a reference – despite the obvious flaw in the plan. The Doctor doesn’t need a computer program to understand archaic dialogue thanks to the TARDIS’ telepathic circuits!
The research group also found that the words "I", "we", "two" and "three" are the oldest in the English language and that "bad", "squeeze" and "guts" will be among the first to become extinct.
Which is quite useful, because now we can change history itself by ensuring that they don’t…!
