If it is without feeling, I doubt if I would like it. I had hope because there was some great poetic writing in Beowulf at times, despite the plot.

well. I do not really mean without feeling. but very few adjectives, if you know what I mean. Very tough guys though. One of my favourite parts is where one man was walking through the forest with some friends, and all his friends are killed. He describes it as "det var hardt å ta seg fram or skogen". Love it. But a little... colourless.

True....I think Norwegian and Swedish would be far more difficult for me if I did not speak German.


you continue to amaze me. Is there some language you do not speak?

A common language would be so dull....at least a common first language. There are so many great languages around it would be sad if they all died just for that. True though, it would be useful in some respects. If there ever was one, I would hate for it to be english...

that is why I am opposed to esperanto. I want to keep the regional languages. But I am very much in favour of a common second language.

Difficult is quite possibly a good thing though...i tried beginning with difficult things with anglo-saxon and it worked well..

hmm... you might like it, then. But if you really like difficult stuff, I truly really recommend Edda.

Edda??

don't tell me you haven't heard of it? That must be the first thing so far?!
There are two Eddas, really. The first one, known as "Eldre Edda", is about Norse Mythology, and it is written in old norse. The second part is also known as Snorre's Edda, and is about Norwegian kings (similar to the sagas of Iceland) and a book about the art of poetry.
"Edda" means great grandmother, by the way.

lol....i can't quite imagine someone really being called Mierin....

yes, I think I would stop to stare for a while if somebody introduced themselves as such
I am getting very used to seeing it in writing, though

I have no idea why I do it.....that was where the confidence idea originally came from, but it is clearly wrong.

it is an interesting thought, though.
