The Timing Of Technology

The rise of the printing press coincided with the time when the rules and norms that linked the verbal and written formats of various languages were easily hijacked by powerful imperatives.

The adoption of the alphabet and the conversion of English using Latin alphabet was undertaken by monks and missionaries in the 6th century, mainly so that the religious texts could be read aloud to an illiterate public. 

Certain sounds from the old English didn’t translate well, as Latin didn’t have them, resulting in workarounds and borrowed words from french.
