comment What is the origin of “GO + VERB + ING”?
@Mari-LouA: I know that they are "go + verb + ing" form but I'm not 100% sure about their modern equivalents. I think biddende is begging and sprecende is speaking. singuynde might be singing. wryȝinge might be writing (or wrying?).

comment A word that means that a germ or disease can affect a species
@Jim: Yes I mentioned that. OP might be thinking the other way around because he doesn't remember the word exactly. I read the question as the virus can affect certain species.
