Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
THOU, THY, THINE, MOTE
I used to teach English. But I confess to struggling with archaic English. I used to advise my students to ignore archaic English as it was ‘out of date’ with the modern understanding and modern tongue.
It was my conjecture as an English Teacher that archaic language like its interpratation may have been syntactically correct but the semantics were next to useless: we simply do not know what is meant as we no longer understand the meanings of how archaic ancient language related to now dead cultures.
So why do we still use these terms?
What is Mote? Please do not anser me. I really do not want to know. If someone wishes to communicate to me in a meaningful way then they need use the mother language of the current culture.
I have no interest in learning ancient English.
Mote is dead. May it rest in peace. Please refrain from digging up decaying corpses
