How old is your mother language?
29 days ago
My mother language is (British) English, which can trace its modern history back to around 1500-1550. Even then, English was very different to what is spoken now, and there were a range of spellings. Before that was a period referred to as "Middle English" which was spoken from around 1150 to 1550. And even before that was what is now known as "Old English", which was spoken from around 450 AD up until when Middle English became widespread. Obviously, these time periods are quite flexible, and the changes occurred over time so that these dates and periods should be treated as broad time periods which have been created by modern linguists.
