So muchel of daliaunce and fair langage.

from Geoffrey Chaucer – The Canterbury Tales (General Prologue) on Rap Genius


(= use so much chit-chat and fair language)

‘Daliauance’ it literally ‘dallying’, as in the modern phrase ‘dilly-dallying’. It primarily means ‘chatting’, but there is a strong secondary meaning of ‘flirting’— to ‘dally’ today has the primary meaning of ‘flirt. So yeah, the Friar was another massive flirt.

(I’m a Flirt Remix pictured, as the Friar’s the second FLirt we’re presented with)
