I'm trying to read one of his sermons in volume 2; but it is slow going. I'm sure that what I am reading is English; yet extremely early English. Here's a sample: gospel telliþ how þat Crist savede a womman, and tauȝte his Chirche. Joon seiþ how, Jesus wente into þe hit of Olyvete, and efte in þe grey morewnyng2 he cam aȝen into þe temple. And here we ben tauȝte to preie and þenke on God bifore we prechen. And al þe puple cam to Crist, and he sitting tauȝte hem. And Phariseis and scribis brouȝten a womman, taken in avoutrie, and þei puttiden her in þe myddil, and þei seiden to Crist, Maistir, þis womman is now taken in avoutrie.
