So, that means, the Germans can understand more of old English than modern English.
You're trying to squirm out of your original claim by moving the goalposts.

You said that modern Germans could *understand* Old English.

Now you're changing your claim to modern Germans being able to "understand more" of Old English than modern English.

So are you admitting that you were wrong when you said that Germans could understand Old English?

(No, you can't keep moving the goalposts.)

Before you open that mouth of yours to insult something, you do your research!
" Wikipaedia ", is correct.
That is, British English.
Let's test that:

Go to their home page: www.wikipedia.org .

Which spelling do you see? I see only "Wikipedia".

Guess you're wrong.

There were probably multiple "original languages". But English is descended from Proto-Indo-European, not from Hebrew.

Under British context it is not. Enclopaedia, enclopedia, etc.
We're not discussing generic words. We're discussing a proper name.

It is spelled "Wikipedia". Learn how to spell it.

<quoted text> I am still saying the same thing. My stand is that, modern German understand or have an idea of old English than modern English, which is true.
You are wrong in every aspect.

This does not make any sense. You may have a point, but I cannot tell based on what you wrote.

Then he'd be lying. We do know that the universe is older than the Earth, not only did we learn this with some impressive mathematics, dating methods, etc. it would be impossible for the Earth to have formed before the thing it exists in was formed.

So you're changing the subject again because you've been caught in another lie. I see.
You are really funny. What is the difference between an idea and understanding?

<quoted text>
Which is it? Understand, or "have an idea"?
Make up your mind.
There is no difference between understanding and having an idea?
The issue is that, old English is more closer to modern German than modern English. By this, the Germans do have a better understanding of old English than modern English.
