PREFACE.

[[** logisk videreutvikling?: overskrifter ifølge Wikisource: boktitel = h1; h2 og h3 i boken, restriktiv med flere **]]

The Old Norsk or Icelandic and the Anglo-Saxon may
be termed the parents of the English Language, and their
Knowledge is not only highly useful but absolutely necessary
to every educated Englishman who looks upon his language with
the eye of a historian and philosopher. Nothing is more
interesting than to look back to these two sources from whence the
english tongue is derived, and a thorough knowledge of
English is only possible by being acquainted with its origin.

These languages together with Anglo-Norman, early
German, ancient, mediæval and modern English, ought to be
regularly studied.

By adapting Rask’s abridgement we have indicated a simple
method of learning Icelandic, which we hope will be found
generally useful.

        The Editor.
