If I had a wayback machine, pt 1

If I had a Wayback Machine, I would happily use it to go beat one Wenilo, notary of the civitas of Moguntia (that’s Mainz to you modernists), soundly about the head and shoulders. Because you know? I don’t care if you’re just copying things out of formularies (or using formulae from memory) — pronouns matter! Women aren’t men, and the first person singular and plural are different things. Hmph.

    Ooo! When you’re done with it can I borrow it? I have a couple of scribes in sixteenth-century Bordeaux with the same problem!
