One mistake in the dialogue is the incorrect usage of the personal pronouns "Thou" and "You". During the 17th century, "You" was reserved for formal situations, and when one was addressing someone of higher status/rank.

Throughout the film, the characters use thou and you interchangeably, however a close-knit family such as theirs would not have likely addressed each other with the formal "You".
