Title:[PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION] Interview with an Anglo-Saxon in Old English

DISCLAIMER: This obviously isn't an actual Anglo-Saxon, it's me in a sheet. *RETROACTIVE DISCLAIMER* - The Old English in this video comes from a time when I was much more interested in modern and recent dialectology, and is full of grammatical errors (and a number of pronunciation errors, as well). This should absolutely not be used as a reference text for somebody wishing to learn Old English; its main value now is in showing how different Old English is from Modern English, and in presenting an ancient language in a conversational context. My more recent videos are more focused on phonology (which I can talk confidently about) and contain fewer errors when I do use grammatical constructions, although there will certainly still be some dotted about. I'm in the process of making a short film in Old English which I hope to check with somebody else so that the speech is both natural and period-accurate. *Original Description* A fun little thing to show reconstructed pronunciation of Old English in a casual setting. I've tried to throw in a few natural abbreviations (for example 'c rather than ic), but I know I missed the mark on one or two of the diphthongs. Either way, hopefully this gives some idea as to how the language sounded in casual speech. Message or comment if you'd like any clarifications, want to correct me on anything, or if you're just interested in the topic and would like to know more! I didn't have any decent Anglo-Saxon clothing and, rather than cobble together something inaccurate, I just chucked on a linen sheet to hide my modern shirt. An actual Anglo-Saxon would be wearing something more like the reenactors shown in a couple of the other clips; a man would usually wear a tunic with a belt, although styles would vary massively from decade to decade and from place to place.
