Middle English was spoken in England from around the 12th Century to the 16th Century.

Subsequent to the Norman Conquest, French influences and linguistic evolution caused significant changes to the English language. This period is known as Middle English, and is more comprehensible to the modern mind than Old English.

Many modern editions of Middle (and old) English texts are Transliterated before publishing.
