    Example text

    The survival of the written language through the centuries has played an important part in conserving the language. The Icelandic language was first written down around 1100, and then texts were written both in Latin and Icelandic. Laws for the country were written in Icelandic at the beginning of the twelfth century. The Icelandic sagas date from the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. A translation of the New Testament into Icelandic was printed in 1540, followed by the whole Bible in 1584. The Icelandic language was the seventeenth language that the Bible was translated into.

    An additional detail of this rule is that in unstressed syllables a changes to u rather than to ö. This u can then cause another change. In the adjective gamall – gömul, the second a of the stem is in an unstressed syllable (only the first syllable is stressed in Icelandic: see the Pronunciation guide) and therefore changes to u, because there was historically an u in the following syllable. The a in the first, stressed, syllable then changes to ö, because there is an u in the following syllable (gamal- is the stem; this becomes *gamul which becomes gömul).

    Try to do all the exercises both orally (to practise speaking Icelandic) and in writing (to practise writing Icelandic). The exercises are designed to practise communication and also grammar structures. The recording that accompanies the book contains selected material from the units. Audio tracking information in the book will guide you to the relevant place in the recording. It contains the words in the pronunciation guide at the beginning of the book, all the dialogues, and some of the grammar explanations.
