  19. @hweiktomeyto

    June 21, 2024 at 5:51 pm

    Gh was pronounced [x] after a back vowel and [ç] after a front vowel

  20. @crossmarian773

    June 21, 2024 at 5:58 pm

    Basically English but you pronounce everything literally

  21. @vassoritzen

  30. @corivian

    Wow it really shows the dutch and german language roots of english

  31. @vanessadiel264

    June 22, 2024 at 1:45 am

    What about the “pronounce every letter” part? Doesn’t apply to the e at the end?

    • @rachelblaquiere9134

      June 22, 2024 at 6:39 am

      Varies case by case, but you’re right that in some words they are pronounced. It tends to be words with French roots though – native Germanic words like wife and house don’t like having coda vowels (cf. Old English wı̄f, hūs)

  32. @rorymcpeake

    June 22, 2024 at 3:32 am

    Sooooo Scottish french??

  33. @KiranMedia.

  36. @RB-kh6fo

    Best way would be to read Canterbury tales in middle english

  37. @dmyt-fr

    …with an American accent???

  38. @tangerinetangerine4400

  40. @boxbury

    June 22, 2024 at 10:52 am

    So basically Scottish…

  41. @muffinman5741

    June 22, 2024 at 11:29 am

    It sounds like reversed speech

  42. @mistym0rning

    June 22, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    Huh. That sounds more like old German to me (I’m German myself).

  43. @YTNFSCC

    so english with a Scottish accent? 😂

  50. @toivoa119

    June 22, 2024 at 11:53 pm

    Much closer to German.

  51. @gunnarolsson3578

    June 23, 2024 at 3:02 am

    Hus och kneckt är ju svenska!

  52. @rangelmdrs

    June 23, 2024 at 3:30 am

    The pronounce is as close to brazilian portuguese as it gets

  53. @suzidilates2714

    June 23, 2024 at 4:14 am

    sounds Turkish to me 😂

  54. @sandraisaksson7853

    June 23, 2024 at 4:46 am

    Some of those words are close to swedish. K’nigt in swedish Knäckt. Hus is hus in swedish.

  55. @williamschubert4819

    June 23, 2024 at 5:31 am

    You can really hear the latin roots in that

  56. @user-hc4lk4lp9o

    June 23, 2024 at 6:42 am

    like the danish words for a young boy knegt or knite the latter one commonly used for scottish stereotypes

    Jengus Christler

  58. @parafraceren

    June 23, 2024 at 7:20 am

    Interesting, that’s basically dutch

  59. @rumble1925

    June 23, 2024 at 3:42 pm

    So the vowels are pronounced as what they actually sound like everywhere else

  60. @MrScottev

    June 23, 2024 at 4:32 pm

    Like a mix of Welsh, Geordie and French.

  61. @olivierstephane9232

  63. @lizzard4890

  64. @samuelhamblin7535

    June 24, 2024 at 2:37 pm

    So those French guys in Monty Python and the Holy Grail were actually more accurate than the English guys

  75. @mimief7969

    “Knight” makes sense since German Kinecht is like, servant or vassal, like Landsknecht

  76. @jacktheladd8841

    June 24, 2024 at 6:02 pm

    The French soldiers in Monty Python’s Holy Grail sounded just like that

  77. @binomesprite7829

    June 24, 2024 at 6:12 pm

    That’s how Monty Python pronounces knight

  78. @Rob-Bless_Jr

  172. @angelabrown8458

    June 28, 2024 at 8:32 pm

  190. @H4ARLEQU1N_

    June 29, 2024 at 8:17 pm

    Sounds like a bad mix of english and norse.. Makes sense for the time-period

  194. @JorMother

    June 29, 2024 at 8:24 pm

    You can really hear the Saxon influence.

  195. @far2kthoughts158

    So basically irish

  201. @felipeemanuel5790

    June 29, 2024 at 8:41 pm

    So, the pronunciation of the medieval English makes more sense than modern English.

  202. @joevalome5443

    June 29, 2024 at 8:42 pm

    So they sounded Irish thanks

  203. @amjthe_paleosquare9399

  206. @suyasuman

    June 29, 2024 at 8:53 pm

    So medievel english was when english words were pronounced as they were written, before we decided prounouce things rabdomly and with a bunch of rules and slient letters and shii

  207. @bluefiasco2344

    June 29, 2024 at 8:55 pm

    That sounds so similar to jamaican pronunciaton

  218. @kevinfelton689

    June 30, 2024 at 7:43 pm

    Makes sense when you think about how much influence France had over the English language after 1066.

    I read somewhere that Richard I only spoke French.

  219. @CWHolleman

    June 30, 2024 at 7:50 pm

    No one was pronouncing the word
    “Knight” as “Kuh-nickt”
