Nice find, Darkstone. [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's another for you: The habit in some modern American dialects of pronouncing "ask" as a homonym of "axe" -- i.e. as though spelt "aks": it's no modern innovation, but rather a survival from Middle English -- the form "aks" is well-attested in fourteenth century texts.
