So, I just joined this community.
I'm doing an independent study of Old Norse with an English professor next year. I'm beyond excited. I am of Norse heritage, and, besides studying a new language, I'll be getting back to my roots as well.

I am already studying Latin and Ancient Greek, so I'm just wondering if the grammar is at all similar besides the fact that they share many of the same cases. Any other information you want to throw at me would be appreciated as well.

For those who want to know, I'm using An Introduction to Old Norse by Gordon.

Yeah, that's all.

Yeah, the Dover book is a reprint of Zoega.

I just checked, and the Bower book appears to be really hard to get ahold of now. When I was taking Old Norse it was like $15-$20... it was a required book in my class. I would recommend checking it out from your institution's library or ordering it via interlibrary loan, then photocopy it. It's not very long.
