      __________________________________________________________

      This valuable book by Professor Nielsen spreads light on the development
      of the Gothic language. The author has in _Den Store Danske Encyclopaedi_
      Vol. 7, more in detail explained the development of Germanic language.
      It starts with Gothic splitting into Older North West Germanic and the
      Early Runic Language, and later comes the West Germanic.

      The present book is developed from lectures by Professor Nielsen
      at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense. The Gallehus runic
      inscription is in the Older Fiuthark (around 200 - 700 AD). The reason
      for the publication of this work is the just passed 200th anniversary of the
      stealing of the Gallehus horns in Denmark.

      Of interest is also Professor Nielsen's _The Early Runic Language
      of Scandinavia. Studies in Germanic Dialect Geography_ (2000).

        Would you care to explain how?

        This publication deals with the runeinscription on one of the golden horns
        from Gallehus 400-450AD and the split between west and north germanic.

        Huh?

        Nielsen has protogermanic splitting into gothic and northwestgermanic=
        early runic.
