Liberation Philology Old Norse
Language Instruction Software
Old Norse can be studied as the language of the Eddas and the Icelandic sagas; the ancestor of the Scandinavian tongues; or, because of the Viking presence in the British Isles, a major influence on the development of English.
But while many of its words are recognisable, the connections are often vague or misleading, and it follows a more complicated grammar than most of its modern relatives. The answer is ultimately memorisation, which is where Liberation Philology Old Norse can help.
Whenever you have a moment to spare, your phone can call up a rolling multiple-choice test that helps you practise Old Norse vocabulary and grammar. Each answer you give is immediately confirmed or corrected, and your knowledge is reinforced by as much repetition as you find useful.
An additional module allows you to review the word-list and paradigms.
Liberation Philology Old Norse is available from the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and from Google Play for phones and tablets running Android 2.2 or higher.
