I have always been interested in the archaic grammar. Recently I've decided to learn a bit more about it and find out how to conjugate the verbs to use it sometimes in the every day English just for fun.

Thou dost it

Thou drawst it

Thou seest it

Thou dost not do it

Thou dost not draw it

Thou dost not see it

Dost thou not do it

Dost thou not draw it

Dost thou not see it

Am I creating these conjugations right?

  • These look correct, although thou doth it lacks poetry. – Andrew Apr 20 at 15:33

  • @LorelC.okay, then how to define what ending I shoud use: "est" or "st" in other verbs? "Draw" gets "est", "see" gets "st", "did" gets "st". What is the rule? – Michael Azarenko Apr 20 at 15:45

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is not a question about learning English in use, but about a dialect "Early modern English" that is no longer current. The simple answer is "don't use any of these" They are all ungrammatical in English. – James K Apr 20 at 17:06
