An Everyday Story of Chaucer's Folk

We just turned on the television and caught a fiery moment in a Flemish soap opera.

"Mak wat you will," shouted a character, before exiting the scene and slamming the door behind him. The credits rolled. Meanwhile, visions danced in our heads.

Visions of Neighbours conducted entirely in Chaucerian English. Eastenders in the language of the Canterbury Tales. Now all we need is the funding and a willing television channel. What fun it will be. How people will love it.

They will love it, won't they?

What's that you're shouting?

"Mak wat you will"?
