I will quickly go over how to use certain tenses in Anglish.
In compound verb phrases, the second verb is left in the infinitive (-en ending) while the first verb is conjugated for the subject.
I will eaten We wollen eaten
Thou wilt eaten Ye wollen eaten
He/she/it will eaten They wollen eaten
A note for the imperfect: make sure to the present participle(-ende ending) for the second verb.
I was eatende We weren eatende
Thou wert eatende Ye weren eatende
He/she/it was eatende They weren eatende
I woulde eaten We woulden eaten
Thou wouldest eaten Ye woulden eaten
He/she/it woulde eaten
They woulden eaten
I eat We eat
Thou eat Ye eat
He/she/it eat They eat
I ate We ate
Thou ate Ye ate
He/she/it ate …

In my first post, I explained grammar for noun declensions. Here I will explain verb conjugations. A strong verb is just another way to say irregular, and a weak verb is regular.
Strong Verb: to sing, in anglish singen sung singende
I singe We singen
Thou singest Ye singen
He/she/it singeth They singen
I sang We sangen
Thou sangest Ye sangen
He/she/it sang They sangen
Weak Verb: to open, in anglish openen' opened 'openede
I opene We openen
Thou openest Ye openen
He/she/it openeth They openen
I openede We openeden
Thou openedest Ye openeden
He/she/it openede They openeden
been been 'bende
I am We aren
Thou art Ye aren
He/she/it is They aren
I was We weren
Thou wert Ye weren
He/she/it was They weren
haven had 'hav…

I love how we are purifying the English language to rid it of its Romantic influence to be much more Germanic. But I was thinking, what if we took the next step and changed the grammar to be closer to Old English. There are two ways this could be done: Through a modern sound change filter, in which the sounds change to the proper patterns of today; or, try to mimic as best we can to the original Old English. I personally prefer the former so that is what I'm going to show below.
NOUNS: There are 4 cases(nominative, accusative, genitive, and dative) for singular, plural; strong and weak. In total, there are 16 noun declensions not including the three grammatical genders because it is very difficult to figure which gender a noun is. A weak no…Read more >
So I've stumbled across Anglish and I'm absolutely amazed and would love to learn. I have quite a linguistic background so I love the idea behind the project, just curious where one should really begin? Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks!Read more >

Hail, my good brethren. I was full of mirth, when I saw that there are many other folks, whose will is to cleanse the fair English tongue. My name is Atanas, I am fifteen and I am from Bulgaria. I hope I can share my ideas with you and we can work together.Read more >
I've recently adopted the inactive sub-reddit /r/Anglish (http://www.reddit.com/r/anglish/)
For those unacquainted, reddit is a website consisting of many small user-made communities, like /r/pics, where pictures are posted, or /r/vexillology (flaglore), where flags are discussed/made.
Anyway, I thought you guys might be interested. I'm looking for fellow moderators to help with it.Read more >
Note: I redd ... from OE past tense "ic red" with another "d" to be unlike the hue red.
I took out the Anglo Saxon for this post. If yu want to see that as well, go here: http://lupussolus.typepad.com/blog/2011/08/sun-blasts-slam-into-earth-anglishanglo-saxon.html

Sun Blasts Slam Into Earth
Two blasts of energy from the sun hit the Earth's magnetic field Friday and could unsettle one or more electrical grids, worldwide-setting systems or other fulyestre-broadcast systems, kenkrafters at the Sea and Luft Theod-Dight said Friday.

English is not my mother tongue, yet maybe you will find my bungling as below somehow heedworthy. It is true that I did not learn of your being-at-the-stead until the last wordset :-).
Good luck! Ought to be nice to hook up with you!

Kind Mr. […],
Please forgive the long lag before I answer now to your couth words from two months ago. Hopefully, the named book is still with you? I took the Dollar swap worth (you wrote: 20,–) from xe.com (→ 14,– €) ... may this be right.
Would you forbear being asked to drop a word or two from your hand anywhere in the book? You should make me highl…

There are many Old Anglish words that are clean words for clean awits but need many words in Anglonic to say it. One word is clean to bring forward: snīte → snyte (to blow one's nose or pick the nose.)
The one I'm having hardship with is hrǽcan (to empty one's throat.) There is the word hork but it does not lend to talking with (like emptying one's throat to warn, to let one know,.) Is hork the word brought over from hrǽcan?
Aftwrit: Did some hunting about for it and I found retch being the most mean follower of it. Well, there I go. I only need to find a way of putting in a talkingly falling. Maybe a belittling ending on the doer (is there any Anglish endings like that?) will do the trick.
Aftwrit two: Snit & retch together might be the best.…

I would rad against steadsetting the word 'survive' with 'overlive', because 'overlive' already has the meaning of 'to live too much', just as the words 'oversleep', 'overdo', 'overeat', mean, eachownly (respectively), 'to sleep too much', 'to do too much', and 'to eat too much. We must be careful to not to sacrifice the clarity and richness of english for 'anglishness'. Using overlive to mean survive would fordo its other meaning (to live too much), or at least create a twomeaningness (ambiguity). As an insteader, may I suggest a seperable prefex verb 'to live out', e.g. few lived the disaster out/ few lived out the disaster', not to be confused with the inseperable prefix verb 'outlive' as in 'He outlived all his siblings' which mea…Read more >
