Classes I have taught:
The Old Norse above has been adapted to my current research on the language as it hypothetically appeared in 10th century Norway. I have had to adapt the traditional spelling to accommodate the nasalized vowels that appeared in the language at that time. All vowels with an ogonek are nasalized. What is traditionally spelt ę in Old Norse manuscripts will appear as ɛ. It is unknown when exactly the u-mutation of a, traditionally spelt ǫ, occurred and I have currently do not express it above. In my notation it would appear as ɔ. My research is not finished, and it is quite possible I have made errors and more probable that I will make updates as I learn more.
