        You're confusing Dutch for Danish.

        Do you know Old Norse? I’ve been interested in learning it

        • 2 months ago

          I am learning it but I don't know it
          https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015001017519
          If you're going to try to learn Old Norse I recommend this textbook which is available for free but I don't think there are any good Old Norse textbooks in English
          I'm up to chapter 20 now and I use NION as a supplement
          One thing you have to realise going into the language is that sound changes are extremely important and you have to learn something of proto-Norse/proto-Germanic in order to make sense of the inflections
          For example
          Egill, Egil, Egils and Agli are all the same word in different cases
          Rjúka, rýk, rauk and rokinn are all the same underlying verb
          There is a rule called u-umlaut which states that the vowel U will transform preceding (stressed) A vowels into ǫ which is nice except that often the U vowel that caused this change has disappeared
          For example the neuter noun barn, children, has the nominative singular form barn but the nominative plural form bǫrn
          Old Norse is a pain in the ass but I want to know it
          If the prospects of a deep dive into the Germanic languages excites you, you should learn it

          Is this a word of the same origin as the German "Zaun", Icelandic "tun" and Swedish (gårds)tun, tun(träd)? It seems to me the limitation of an area is the central concept in it. It seems unrelated to hills or mounds.

          Sorry I wasn't implying that they were cognates

            He said he’s working on a book for self-learners of Old Norse. I think it comes out next year or the year after.

      Can finns understand quenya or is it a meme, plus he has other languages like sindarin khuzdul, black speech so this isn't even remotely relevant.

        It is very intuitive. Even something like The Silmarils (Quenya = Silmarilli) sounds essentially Finnish, but it is gibberish.

        >Conceptual Development: The name ᴱQ. Silmaril dates back to the earliest Lost Tales (LT1/128). Christopher Tolkien suggested that at this early stage it was a compound of ᴱQ. Sil “Moon” and ᴱQ. marilla “pearl” (LT1A/Silmaril), which is consistent with its Gnomish cognate G. Silubrilt. In The Etymologies, the name ᴹQ. Silmaril appears as a combination of silma “silver, shining white” and the root ᴹ√RIL (Ety/RIL, SIL), similar to its later etymology.

        Even though it is gibberish, it is still very intuitive use of Finnish style language. I mean I guess you could re-translate it to English as something like "Silveriöinen" and it would sound as good

      This criticism makes no sense because he wasn't trying to create an original alien language. These are supposed to be prehistorical versions of historical languages of Earth. His Middle Earth is literally supposed to be prehistorical Europe. It's not a different world.

        There’s always a cope. And this take ignores the Indo-European language btw
