|Introduction||Lesson 1: Letter Pronunciation|
Hi, I have learnt (and am learning) much of the Old English language, it being the language that was spoken about one thousand years ago (500 A.D-1100 A.D) in England.
Old English was, like most old European languages, highly inflicted, having four cases (and partially a fifth one), three genders, and two numbers (and partially a third one).
Before you get started on learning the Old English language, you should know that being able to speak another modern Germanic language other than English will help greatly (German especially), but being able to speak Modern English will also help greatly, as about a quarter (depends on the source of your information) of Modern English words are actually English!
Should you need any help understanding the linguistic jargon used in here, A List of Common Linguistic Terms should be helpful to you.
