@viciousviscosity Looks like "could" comes from "cuðe" which was the past tense of the ancestor of "can". In the 14c., The ending changed to just -d and in the 15c. the -l- was added but it's ahistorical probably by influence of the other two.
"Should" comes from "sceolde" which was the past tense of the ancestor of "shall" and "would" from "wolde" which was the past tense of the ancestor of "will". In both cases the -l- was originally pronounced.

Hi everyone! I did some posts on Patreon today.
I'm trying to keep my patreon content different and separate from my blog posts.
Today we're talking about Judex, and how the Judex film serial was responsible for both the modern american super hero and the narrative style adopted by modern TV.
It's good stuff.

i swear i'm not referring to my old posts with this run of dailies; just that i have tendencies towards the same sorts of feelings in these annual cycles, i suppose!

Other than that, we welcome anyone who wants to come join and whatever language you speak! Anyone who creates - writing, drawing, game devs, crafting, you name it - is especially welcome, since we all do that kind of thing already. By a similar token, we are also a queer- and kink-friendly planet.
Special thanks to @Daily@tootplanet.space for doing the Tooting Planet art, and to @firstname.lastname@example.org for letting me make a background out of their awesome planet art.
