And if you want the orginal words with modernized spelling plus glossary and commentary you can either download the PDFs from here http://academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu/we...hy/canterbury/ or buy the kindle book https://www.amazon.com/Canterbury-Ta.../dp/B00B13DK7K

Here's the editor's statement
The Language of this Edition
Some Chaucerians, act as if the works of the poet should be carefully kept away from the general reader and student, and reserved for those few who are willing to master the real difficulties of Middle English grammar and spelling, and the speculative subtleties of Middle English pronunciation. Others may read him in translation if they wish !

The text of this edition in modern English spelling is intended to subvert that misguided notion. It is designed for those readers in school, university, living room or commuter train who would like to read or re-read Chaucer as readily as they can read or re-read other classics in English; readers who do not want the vagaries of archaic Middle English spelling, nor yet a flat translation. Very few scholars now read Shakespeare in the spelling of his day, but all readers of Chaucer are forced to read him in the spelling of his day, and this is a great obstacle for most people. This edition is meant to supply a version of Chaucer that avoids both simple translation or scholarly archaism. This edition is not a translation. The grammar, the syntax, and the vocabulary of this modspell edition remain essentially unchanged from the language of the original. Everything is Chaucer’s except for the spelling. Hence it can also be used as an accompanying or preliminary text by those who wish to master Chaucer's dialect as it is displayed in scholarly editions.
That look's like an excellent idea.I've download the PDFs and will buy the Kindle version if everything looks good.

PC, can I have some of what you're drinking?
I was going to say "smoking" but I suppose it might be a bucket of mead left over from Beowulf?

Well, a glass of wine helps with most things. Not actually required for Chaucer, though.
It really is readable. Some of the tales are very funny, ok not all of them. Somewhere I have a vinyl disc of a reading, sounds like a heavy Northern accent.
