Old Saxon (Old Low German), was a Germanic language and the earliest recorded form of Low German. It was spoken throughout modern northwestern Germany, primarily in the coastal regions and in the eastern Netherlands by Saxons. It is documented from the 8th century until the 12th century, when it gradually evolved into Middle Low German.
The Old Saxon verb inflection system reflects an intermediate stage between Old English and Old Dutch, and further Old High German. Like Old English, Old Saxon did not preserve the three different verb endings in the plural.
