      We should probably warn beginners, in case you hadn't guessed, this
      link is a joke: the sentences on this site aren't actually Old Norse!!
      Some of the words listed are, but a lot of them are garbled, misspelt
      or wrongly defined. They'd be more likely to draw blank expressions
      than bloodlust from any Vikings you might meet.

      Keep reading Njáls saga though, and we'll get to the real thing soon
