The database has been adapted here to include prose texts for teaching purposes. These texts have been adapted largely from existing resources by Tarrin Wills with linked translations, grammatical information and notes. Selecting a text section will allow you to see an analysis of the text with notes, and there are language exercises under development to test you on your language skills.
The text of Hrólfs saga is from Guðni Jónsson’s edition in Fornaldar sögur norðurlanda (1954); Skáldskaparmál is based on the text in Anthony Faulkes’s Viking Society edition; Laxdœla saga and Grœnlendinga saga are taken from the Íslenzk fornrit series. The text of Vǫlsunga saga is from Gordon’s Introduction to Old Norse, with incest restored. The first section of Hrólfs saga includes a close, unidiomatic parallel translation by Tarrin Wills. The glossary has also been produced by Tarrin Wills.
