        Please define "Modern English". As linguists and historians use the
        term, it refers to English from the 16th century onwards. So this
        would include Shakespeare and the King James Bible. The English
        before that was Middle English, as found in Chaucer. I assume,
        though, when you say "Middle English" you're referring to English as
        it's currently spoken.
