With so much interest shown in 15th century speech in other posts, I thought that I'd throw out a very unusual author. Christopher Moore is a nutcase. He has written a bunch of books, each more strange and funny than the last. However, his book 'Fool' is the best. It is the King Lear story told by the Court jester and if you want to learn that story (with a little poetic licence) and split your sides at the same time, read this. It is written in the language of Shakespere intersperced with present day colloquil (?) English. Not diologue for Sunday school, but all the more amazing coming from an American author, he must have researched his word selection in Warrington.
