XI-century Spanish which is perfectly legible -- you just have to remember that "x" is
"j" and ignore the double letters) whereas English from the XV Century is
still more like German than modern English. Barsoomian obviously changes even
more slowly than Spanish. If Pan Dan Chee can communicate with Llana without
any difficulty, that means the surviving Orovars in Horz speak a variety of
Barsoomian which is still intelligible.
Start the year off right. Easy ways to stay in shape.

Work on your error rate. English was never meant to
be spoken properly.
