For a bit of fun, Literary Genre Translations takes the text “I ate a sandwich and looked out the window” and translated into 19th-Century British Romance thusly:
“Being but a governess with no prospects but a fierce wit and a quick temper which is out of mode, I nibbled a soda biscuit and looked off into the glade, awaiting my dear friend—whom I surely could not come to love—Mr. Wadswortherton.”
