- Greetings all,
I was wondering if Haukur and others in the know, have an opinion on the
English translation of Rasmus Rask's Old Icelandic Grammar?

Rask, of course, was a pioneer in the field and while much
of what he contributed is now obsolete he unquestionably
did know Icelandic.
- Greetings Haukur,
Thanks very much for the reply. I was able to obtain a copy of it just
recently and we will be working on getting it transcribed for the Northvegr
site some time in the coming months. I hope you might be interested in
looking it over once we have it ready to post at the site.

- Greetings all,I am working on coordinating an effort to transcribe Rasmus Rask's "A Grammar of the Icelandic or Old Norse Tongue." This book will be posted at the Northvegr site once it has been completely transcribed. I am hoping that some here might be interested in helping with the effort. The only payment I can offer is credit for the work done. The work will be done from TIFF graphic files which you will be able to download in zip files, and can be scanned by OCR software, but the scans will have to be proofread, as most OCR software does not interpret Icelandic characters very well. You can also type the files into text files directy from the graphic files if you would like as well.If you are interested in helping out, you can contact us at northvegr@.... I will give the list an update once the transcribing has been completed and the text is available at the site.best regards,Alfta
