This is a subject that I frequently post about, and yet its basics have yet to be properly discussed. This post will help you to achieve familiarity with the Icelandic language, both in terms of written characters and their respective sounds. This guide may also be used as a method for pronouncing Old Norse. It is a lengthy guide, but that is because Icelandic, in all its beauty, is a bit difficult for most people to pronounce. In the end, this quite is only “basic” because it does not delve deeply into the linguistics behind certain sounds involved. Nonetheless, this guide should provide to be very helpful!
When working through this guide, try to avoid becoming overwhelmed. I strongly recommend working through only one section at a time.
*explaining my dream I had last night about going to Iceland*
that's weird because my friend just got back from Iceland and I don't remember telling you
that's because she has had a thing for Iceland lately
no, I don't have a thing for Iceland, i have a thing for an Icelandic kids show about eating right and being active and watching a man in a really tight blue costume flip around and summon apples from the sky
