      Okay,

      I've been through the recent Finlaesk posts, and combined the pieces of
      the discussion together, along with some of my own notes.

      Here is a rough picture of the sound-changes so far. Note that no changes
      other than phonetic (i.e. morphological/grammatical/lexical) have been
      applied:

      Old Norse:

      Ísland bygðisk fyrst ór Norvegi á dǫgum Haralds ins Hárfagra,
      Hálfdanarsonar ins Svarta, í þann tíð -- at ætlun ok tǫlu þeira Teits
      fóstra mins, þess manns er ek kunna spakastan, sonar Ísleifs biskups ; ok
      Þorkels fǫðurbróður mins, Gellissonar, er langt mundi fram; ok Þóríðar
      Snorradóttur Goða, er bæði var margspǫk ok ólúgfróð -- er Ívarr,
      Ragnarsson Loðbrókar, lét drepa Eadmund inn Helga Englakonung. En þat var
      870 vetra eptir burð Krists, at því er ritit er í sǫgu hans.

      Finlaesk Phonetic:

      i:Kant pik?sisx fiwt @: n@lwiki a: tOk@~ haGalts ins ha:faGa,
      ha:lfta~Gas@~wa ins swa:sa, i: Kann si:?s -- as Ex@~ @x sOl@ KejoG sejt
      f@:sSa mins, Ket manns e: ex xonna sfaxatan, s@na i:Kijfs pisx@fs; @x
      K@lxils fO?s@pl@?s@ mins, kellit@~wa, e: lanks monti flam; @x K@:j?sa
      sn@llat@st@ k@?sa, e: pE?si wa: ma:ksfax @x @:liwkfl@?s -- e: i:wa,
      takna:t@n l@?spl@:xa, le:s tSefa eGtm@~t inn helka enklax@~wk. en Kas wa:
      870 weSa efsiw po:?s xits, as Kwi: e: tisis e: i: sOk@ hans.

      Finlaesk Orthographic:

      íhlant pik·sisx fiut ǿ nøluiki á tǫkø̄ haȝalts ins háfaȝa,
      hálftāȝasø̄ua ins suása, í hlann sí·s -- as ęxø̄ øx sǫlø hlejoȝ sejt
      fǿtSa mins, hlet manns é ex xonna sfaxatan, søna íhlijfs pisxøfs; øx
      hlølxils fǫ·søplø·sø mins, kellitø̄ua, é lanks monti flam; øx hlǿj·sa
      snøllatøstø kø·sa, é pę·si uá máksfax øx ǿliukflø·s -- é íua,
      taknátøn lø·splǿxa, lés tSefa eȝtmø̄t inn helka enklaxø̄uk. en hlas uá
      870 ueSa efsiu pó·s xits, as hluí é tisis é í sǫkø hans.

      What do you think of it so far?
