The Taming of the Shrew

Using act 1, scene 2, of taming of the shrew, and referring to the comments(lines) of Hortensio to Petruchio below and answer thse questions: What old verb and pronoun forms are used in these lines? What do the words "come roundly" mean?

Lines as follow:

Petruchio, shall I then come roundly to thee

And wish to thee to a shrewd ill-favour'd wife?

Thou'dst thank me but a little for my counsel;

And yet I'll promise thee she shall be rish,

And very rich, But th'art too much friend

And I'll not wish thee to her.
