Chart 4

The Old English Strain


The second most important chart introduces words which were used by the Anglo Saxons in 1066 when William the Conqueror invaded their land.

They are the basic words of life such as eat, boat, night and knife which were recorded in full by his scholars.

These words are usually short and contain letters which are no longer pronounced although they remain in the spelling.

These appear frequently in early reading books and because of this are often remembered.

By contrast, words such as came and went from Latin may not be known.
