Title: Old English Phrases for the Traveler to Anglo-Saxon England by Mary Savelli
Post by: cenwulf on December 16, 2012, 06:16:45 PM
I've just downloaded the above book from Amazon, which is available only as a kindle download (though you can convert it into other formats). It's only short (around 60 pages), but it's set out like a modern traveller's phrase book. I like the fact that you can learn actual phrases, rather than trying to cobble them together from homilies etc. There's a very brief pronunciation guide, but no grammar. The short word list at the back is broken up into a few different categories e.g. arms and armour, food and the feast hall. Overall I think it's an entertaining and useful addition to the more comprehensive works we all have in our library.

It sounds like an extension of her article in the Companion's Handbook (see `P 83-85 of that seminal publication)


Copies of the Handbook are still available for purchase from David Hinch Wita (see P 2 of WW 164 for contact details)
