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.

Well actually, German Nouns are declined, just to an extremely lesser degree. Most masculine and neuter nouns for example take the -s or -es ending in the genitive. The dative plural -n is also preserved as well.
