      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.
