Germanic Languages | An Introduction to Old Norse-Icelandic
G635 | 27197 | K. Gade


The object of the course is to give an introduction to Old Icelandic
language and literature. The focus will be on linguistic aspects
(phonology, morphology, and syntax), with sidelights to the
literary, cultural, and mythological traditions. Select passages
from E. V. Gordon, An Introduction to Old Norse will be translated
and serve as a background for the lectures. The final grades will be
based on class participation, a midterm, a final, and an oral
presentation.
