You can use tú with people you don't know, depending on your and their age/gender/context/hyerarchical status/socioeconomic status, and the dialect. It's a myth that the difference is about knowing or not-knowing people. Yeah, it's very common for websites to use tú or vos, though usted is also seen.

Now some contributions to the thread:
http://mgarci.aas.duke.edu/cibertextos/ANONIMO/MIO-CID/MANUSCRITO/DEST-MSS.HTM
Right column: Menéndez Pidal's philological ASCII-friendly transcription of the manuscript of the Çid.
Left column: Miguel Garci-Gomez's adaptation of the transcription at the right, to make it easier for Spanish speakers to read it, adding marks to know who's saying what in the text (there's dialogue in the manuscript, but it's all left to context, dashes and quotation marks didn't exist yet), although all the vocabulary/grammar/etc. is left intact. Note the website is very old, and the notes don't work anymore.

http://bib.cervantesvirtual.com/servlet/SirveObras/06927218700692762979079/index.htm
Libro de Alexandre (written during the first half of the 13th century): authoritative version made by Francisco Marcos Marín, by comparing both extant manuscripts and choosing the word forms of one or the other. Comes with apparatus. (Click on "El Texto" to go to the text itself. Use the arrows at the top right to go the next page.)

FWIW, in German Google uses +Ich ("+Me")

A seemingly quite in-depth, no frills course in Cornish, that you can even get some kind of accreditation for, I think. It looks like it's basically a grammar with readings, audio and translation questions.

Edit: I believe it's written in the KK orthography. As most discussions in Cornish on the internet appear to be on the matter of how every orthography apart from [insert preferred system here] is a blasphemous horror, this may be relevant to know. Honestly, go on some Cornish forums. For every sensible post in Cornish, there are two posts discussing how the writer is destined for Hell and clearly is a kiddy-fiddler who eats poo for breakfast for writing arghans instead of arhans.

Polish Google uses "+Ty", with the informal 2sg pronoun.

Thanks! But (not to clutter this thread up), could you take a look at this?

Quote:
A preliminary look at restricted counting in Proto-Salish

Ryan Denzer-King
Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey
This paper examines the hypothesis that Proto-Salish had a
restricted counting system ending at four, as suggested by the
disparity of Salishan numerals above four, as well as the
general analyzability of higher numerals. Besides these
overall trends in numerals, evidence for count ending at four
include a reconstructed Proto-Salish root with the meaning
‘ready/completed’, and a subtractive Bella Coola form for
‘three’ incorporating the root for ‘four’. The limitation of the
system to the numeral four may have its root in preverbal
cognitive processes, which seem to be limited to discrete
quantities of four or less. If Proto-Salish had a restricted
numeral system ending at four, the disparity and analyzability
of higher numerals is expected.

The National Archives site (of the UK) has a fairly decent looking guide to medieval Latin, which is what lots of our older records were written in, made by our government, no less. A thousand years of bureaucracy is a horrid thing to waste.

At the History Centre near us, there was a day course in medieval pa... paleog... palaeography? yes, that looks right, which I'd recommend doing if you see it come up. It was only £3 or something. I was the youngest person there by thirty years, but that's not uncommon for me because I'm weird and live somewhere rural.

Really, was it that way? That's cool! I developed unknowingly some similar metatheses for mediaeval Irlandic:

parat + me = parante! "stop me!"
parat + lo = paralte! "stop it!"
it + vos = eutes! "go away!"

Modern forms are:

me parat
lo parat, read "y parat"
vos it, read "us it"

Hmm, I really like eutes for "go away". It has euphonic strength, IMO.

True. It comes from /'iv.t@s/ > /'iw.t@s/ > /'ew.t@s/, which is probably what is was pronounced like during that stage.

Nowadays people go for "FOOOOOOOOR" from "y it for", cf. Spanish fuera, in the North especially; it's [fɑ:::], with emphasis too.

Newton - web app for teaching yourself British-style intonational theory & another tool for the same; the style of notation is after Wells' English Intonation, so it's very friendly (albeit not as fine-grained as it could be.)

Main website has a lot of software.
