\Lime\, n. [AS. l[=i]m; akin to D. lijm, G. leim, OHG. l[=i]m, Icel. l
[=i]m, Sw. lim, Dan. liim, L. limus mud, linere to smear, and E.
loam. [root]126. Cf. Loam, Liniment.] 1. Birdlime.
"Kalk" probably derives from greek...
Mostly means "glue" in modern core langs, I think...

SAOB... [fsv. bös,.som d. bös af mnt. bs l. t. böse]
Check out the link page for information on etymology, word origins,
- To be honest I used just a few (paper) dictionaries and my own knowledge to create Middelsprake.
I have a Dutch-Scandinavian dictionary, with Dutch - Danish - Swedish - Norwegian and New Norwegian, with a lot of sentences and a grammatical sketch of each language.
BTW in Middelsprake the infinitive form is the same as the present. So:
ga = to go
ig ga = I go
ig schal ga = I shall go
geve = to give
ig geve = I give
ig mot geve = I must give
se = to see
ig se = I see
ig kan se = I can see
true = to trust
ig true = I trust
ig wil true = I want to trust
Of course with the exception of Wese (to be) and Have (to have)

Where did you find the verb conjugation for
low saxon, frisian and new norwegian?
I tried the free online conjugator at www.verbix.com,
but it doesn't seem to work properly.. =S
