I am writing a book (novel) about Alaric and I want to try to remain as historically accurate, not just in events, but in speech also.I will not have Alaric speaking Gothic, of course, but if I can use some of he phrases used by the Goths to add authenticity to my story, I think it would add much to the book.Thanks in advance.Tom
