As my journal has surprisingly continued to be Drama Llame free, (Phew! - Ed.), I think I'm pretty much at a point where most of the folks who read regularly, are a trustworthy bunch. I do still feel that as I am trying to keep this an open journal, unlike my last, I may have to reiterate, personal entitlement to some who choose to overstep the bounds.

My journal, is my own. To do with and say within, what I choose. It is not entertainment that you may heckle or applaude just because it is based on the hindernet. While all constructive criticisms are welcomed, (I do have an open mind and a willingness to learn), any attempts to manipulate my words or images to your own ends, at a detriment to myself or those presented within those words and images, is actually legally actionable and you may be sued in court for, defamation of character or damages incurred due to your manipulation, of/to those parties mentioned in text or presented through images, within this journal. Get it? Got it? Good!

I'm tired of random plebeians, wandering around the hindernet looking for someone to pick at or to blame for maladies in their own lives. I refuse to make my journal Friends Only to appease the one or two with misplaced levels of personal entitlement, over the rest of the sane and usually quite interesting, populace of hindernet surfers.

You know who you are. If you fall into the stalker, malintentuous lurker or even ex '*' that shouldn't be hovering here anymore, categories, Be Gone!. You and your comments or copy/pasting of my journal in part or it's entirety, are not welcome.

To every other human being that does not belong to any of the afore-mentioned categories, I apologise for your having to read this post. It's a total shame that a decent person needs to place something like this up to remind, just the few, that there is still, a 'called for' modicum of politeness, even on the hindernet.

Anyone feeling that they would like to use this small schpiel for their own journal, is welcome to do so. I do not want credit for it, if posted elsewhere. I have never wanted credit for mapping out what should be basic knowledge and courtesy extended to everyman in whatever medium.

Old Norse? Which Old Norse?

The term Old Norse refers to the language spoken in Scandinavia and Scandinavian settlements from about 800 to about 1350. It should be obvious that it was not exactly the same language over a vast area and 550 years. It is usually split into two groups, which are then split into two dialects.

West Norse - Old Icelandic/Old Norwegian
East Norse - Old Danish/Old Swedish

Of all these, the dialect which preserved the most interesting literature is Old Icelandic. This course will teach Old Icelandic from the 13th century; when such works as Heimskringla and the Edda were composed. The spelling of Old Icelandic words is normalised to the accepted standard. When texts that are not from the 13th century are quoted we will still use the same spelling.
The term 'Old Norse' is sometimes used to mean specifically what we here call 'West Norse' or what we here call 'Old Icelandic'. It is sometimes applied to Icelandic up to the 16th century.


Hope you enjoy this. Especially you, xaemyl. >;)

A Guide to Gaelic for BeginnersCollapse )

Gaelic is spoken in two British countries and one British principality. Each location has its on dialect, but essentially, all three versions are based upon the same language. The Gaelic offered here is that of the Scots. Namely from the northern-most highlands of Scotland. The text here is from a booklet that my own Granny gave to me so that I could better understand her, as she spoke no English. It may be that she spoke an even deeper dialect than this version, as she lived and loved on the island of Stroma, which is part of the Orkneys.

If you find this useful and would like me to put up a vocabulary list or an initial lesson in the language, please comment. Thank you.

I started this journal as a means of escape. A place I could be myself entirely and allow my creative flow to pool. Since that day, I have intermittently authored a post or two. Never quite cutting the cords to the journal that I grow weary of. I'm sure when I am ready to, I will be here fully. Until then I apologise for ducking in and out.

In an anonymous journal I have already posted some of the things I am working on. That journal is called sonorous_herald. You are welcome to read what there is so far. They are just drafts to refine, but everything starts as something and evolves into either a better manifestation of it's beginnings or as inspirations for other things to form.

I suppose I really ought to type a little something personal from time-to-time.

Savitri by M. Parkes

I began this journal for two reasons:
1) To have a storage unit for ideas that do not fit elsewhere.
2) To develop myself online.٭

So far, I've been a little timid about expressing myself openly, even though the journal was closed. I believe this may be because I don't want to ruin a clean, new thing. Like making a bed with fresh linen, sumptuous duvey and crisp plump pillows. It looks so amazing and inviting, but you don't want to climb in lest you ruffle it. That and the prolonging of desire to enter and enjoy can make it all the more delightful.

I recently bought myself a 1935 edition, not leatherbound, hardcover copy of Ivanhoe. This is immensely enjoyable. I never rub out the pencil markings previous owners have left behind. Not even the price. $20 (USD).

I have ventured out and joined a few communities. I think I may need to join more. I brought along a good few of those from my previous journal.

This reads disjointedly. I have decided, since the start of this post and then after reading it back to myself, that I shall leave my personal life open for questions asked rather than offering random facts. So, any questions from the audience are fine.

٭~ I've noticed that most of my cohorts tend to .... exagerate or explore more fully, aspects of their natural demeanor and personality when they are displaying themselves, in whichever context, online, in ways they never would face-to-face. If this means I may become someone else, great. That opens a whole new world to me. I doubt however, that I'll manage to elaborate much on who I am, let alone bring select aspects of myself out to play. We shall see. See Emily play.
