Forsooth

Posted by Sathyaish on March 18, 2004

I understand that the word forsooth dates back to times even before Shakespeare, and is now rarely used with the exception of legal documents that still may find space for it. If it were used today, how would one use it in a sentence or two? Could you please illustrate the usage with an example sentence or two? I understand it is used as an intensifier for the words "indeed" or "in truth" or "actually" or "in reality".
