OxfUni Press | 1981/2 | ISBN: 0198111738 019811172X 9780198111726 9780198111733 | 402 pages | 22 PDF | MB

This book will give you a very good knowledge of the Old Icelandic language. It is a primer for all aspects of the Old Norse language designed to serve the needs of both linguists and literary scholars.

The book consists of 35 lessons, and each lesson introduces a couple of grammatical points, with plenty of examples. The grammar section in each lesson is followed by one or two reading selections, vocabulary and exercises. The exercises consist of grammatical drills, and sentences to be translated from English into Old Icelandic.

The first 10 lessons have "made-up" reading selections, but after that, it's all the real thing. Each lesson introduces a large number of vocabulary items; by the end of the book you're going to have the grammatical knowledge and the vocabulary to read just about anything on your own (with the help of a dictionary, of course).
