King James Bible style.BKh wrote:As people familiar with Mrs. Rhys David's translation style know, the language is very outdated. One interestign benifit of reading the text on a Kindle is that almost all of the archaic words she uses are in the built-in dictionary. I was quite astounded to find that she wasn't just making them up. Does anyone know exactly what style of English this is? Victorian? Elizabethean? I have no idea.
