In the past few decades, interest in the rich and varied literature of early Scandinavia has prompted a great deal of interest in its background: its origins, social and historical context, and relationship to other medieval literatures. Until the 1980s, however, there was a distinct lack of scholarship in the area, so in 1985, Carol J. Clover and John Lindow brought together some of the most ambitious and distinguished Old Norse scholars to contribute essays for a collection that would finally fill the void of a comprehensive guide to the field.

Old Icelandic literature, both in poetry and prose, presents a wealth of interesting material, which in some respects stands unrivalled among the literatures of medieval Europe, and without which, one's knowledge of the ancient North would certainly be limited.

The Scandinavian influence was the earliest, and arguably one of the strongest external forces that went into the making of modern English. Consequently, a knowledge of the Icelandic language is of utmost importance. Not only does Icelandic supply a linguistic basis for such a study, it also provides the source of a great deal of the necessary information for the understanding of medieval British history. Old Icelandic literature, both in poetry and prose, presents a wealth of interesting material, which in some respects stands unrivalled among the literatures of medieval Europe, and without which, one's knowledge of the ancient North would certainly be limited.

First published in England in 1910 and last printed in 1975, Geir T. Zoega's A Concise Dictionary of Old Icelandic has long been the foremost reference source for the Icelandic language. Compiled on the general principle of including all the words the ordinary student of Icelandic is likely to meet, the dictionary has helped to bring about a wider interest in the language and literature of Iceland and is considered an essential complement to the study of medieval Nordic literature.


Reviews about A Concise Dictionary of Old Icelandic (MART: The Medieval Academy Reprints for Teaching) (7):
Paxondano
If you've ever tried to understand the Eddas or Sagas and wished that you could get a better translation, this is your chance. Takes a little getting used to, but after you figure out where things are located this dictionary is invaluable. We've translated tons of text with it (we have biweekly Old Norse Translation Nights *flies the geek flag high*), and being able to do so has given such a richer experience to reading the old texts.

This has been a fantastic resource for me, a student of Modern Icelandic, to figure out older forms of words in order to figure out why they behave in the way that they do in the modern language. A perfect example would be the Modern Icelandic word, sonur, which in certain cases doesn't behave as one would expect it to, but with the help of the Old Icelandic dictionary I was able to solve this problem by finding the original form of the word, sunr, which answered any question that I had in my mind. This is not the only problem of the modern language that this dictionary has helped me to solve. The use of example phrases with pretty much every entry in the dictionary is also very helpful.

I cannot recommend this book enough but I would recommend it more for more advanced students of Icelandic and/or other Nordic languages.

In my studies of Old Norse, I have found Zoega's work to be entirely indispensable, and the ability t see the entire work online has not made my hard copy any less useful or valuable. It has been particularly helpful in my studies of Sigdrifumal where a lot of meaning is hidden in compound words.

This book is not small, seems reasonably complete, and is helpful in all areas of Old Norse studies.

In general, this is one of the most important Old Icelandic-English dictionaries around. If you need one, get this one.

Fascinating reading and very handy to have in kindle format. This dictionary was recommended to me by my Old Norse-Icelandic teacher a few years ago, and I was delighted to find an affordable copy. A print copy would have been lovely to have on the shelf, but I enjoy the practicality of the kindle copy, easy searching and browsing, and the thing lies flat, unlike my textbooks. Highly recommended: this is one of those books I keep wanting to tell people about.

Great help - using it conjunction with Viking Language 1 - a lot of help

I found this dictionary a good complement to the Icelandic to english dictionary/thesaurus that I also had bought. Between the two I was able to find most words that I was looking for and good meanings to understand the differences or the different ways that a word is produced in the Ilandic language. Even though I'm not the best at english spelling with every word I look up in this Dictionary I find the I increase my correct spelling in english.

The write stuff:

Practically the only fault I can find is the lack of an English-

Norse section, which would simplify things for novelists who

want their Viking characters to sound authentic. Still, you can

find a wealth of material in sample sentences. The more difficult

of these are given English translations. Since it's a scholarly

work, don't look for slang or very much colloquial speech.

On the technical front:

Standard format is followed, where vowel fusions, umlauts, etc.

are presented at the end of their respective letter sections.

Words beginning with such characters begin after the V section.

Most useful is the separation of nominative from genitive forms.

This makes wading through medieval readers much easier (the

stated goal of the author). When you come upon an unfamiliar

word--nowhere to be found in the reader's glossary--you can

find it in the dictionary, whereupon you're directed to the

root word for a full definition.

For students:

It's informative to compare modern Icelandic with Old Norse.

For example, you'll find that "athugi" becomes the modern

form "athygli".
Fantastic , has everything in it I need except one thing, how to pronounce the words which are quite difficult.
