Hey all, was reading Gina's post. She already knows of these books cause ive shown her my pre-entry reading list for the Scandinavian Department at UCL, but they recommend that you read:

E.V. Gordon, Introduction to Old Norse
M.P. Barnes, A New Introduction to Old Norse (Part 1: Grammar)

The books themselves can be found on amazon but take up to 6 weeks to arrive. Places like waterstones dont have the second one on their system and only have the oldest version of the first, which can cost over 30 quid to get. However, they do have the other parts of the M.P. Barnes series.

Just thought youd like to know.

Thanks,

Subject:Need help with a translation
Time:08:53 pm
Hey everyone

I'm a newbie and I'm looking for a bit of help. I belong to a medievil recreation group and I'm looking for a translation for my group name.But I'd rather have it in Old Norse as opposed to modern Norweigen.

We'd like to be known as The Bastards Castle or Castle of Bastards or something to that effect. Can anyone possible help me?

Thank you so much

I have just joined this community. I spooted it while doing a search of communities yesterday and it has re-kindled my desire to learn Old Norse. Previously I had not looked itno learning it as I assumed there wouldn't be much in the way of material to learn from. Already the links in the community info have got me excited. I am planning to re-learn German as well (I learned some German in high school) so hopefully the two Germanic languages will complement each other and not be too difficult to learn together. I'd love to be able to read the old sagas in Old Norse.

I'm so glad this community exists and I look forward to taking part in the discussions.

Hey all! Just thought I'd let you know about asnac, a new LJ community for people interested in the languages and cultures of Medieval Britain and Scandinavia. It's an offshoot of the Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Society at the University of Cambridge, but anyone is welcome to join. We're very sociable and fun people, we welcome newcomers and we love nothing better than to sit around and chat about medieval stuff. Hope to see some of you there!

Hi you all.
I am new here. I am very interested in Old Germanic languages, and the Norse branch especially.
I was wondering whether learning modern Icelandic bring me closer to understanding Old Norse, since as much as I understand, it changed only slightly (I know it's all relative) since old times?

Besides that, I love comparing Norse words to other Germanic or Indo-European words, especially English ones :)
