I am a student from Germany and I will have next week my final exam in Early Modern English. I have to hold a speech and I would like to introduce the speech by the following citations:
"As it is knowen how many maner of peple ben in this jlonde ther ben also so many languages and tonges".
"Emong al other lessons, this should be learned, that wee never affect any straunge ynkehorne termes, but to speake as is commonly receiued".
These shall demonstrate the attitudes towards the diversity of English , plus the difference in pronunciation before and after the Great Vowel Shift.
Unfortunately, I have still great difficulty in pronunciation both citations. May somebody of you be able to send me a phonetic transcription of both citations.
