ReimerSent: Monday, February 28, 2005 9:48 PMSubject: [norse_course] Getting StartedGreetings All!I have never posted to this list, primarily because I have never figured out how to get started. I read with a certain amount of intimidation all your posts on advanced Old Norse and, well, just have never posted.This last weekend, I went to the Harrow Moot, just outside of Mexia, Tx. There, I mingled with several Folks from Anglo-Saxon Heathenry; however, this is not the first time I have done so. What impresses me about these people is that many of them have taken the time to learn Old English as a part of their religious expression. I, coming from more of the Scandinavian end of things, want to learn Old Norse, as a part of my religious expression.How do I get started? What is out there for the ABSOLUTE beginner that need to learn inflexion (sp?); that need to hear what it sound like before the learning process can begin?Vaygar Odden Elmersson, StorGodi
