Icelandic

Grammar, Text and Glossary

This classic book on the Icelandic language was written to aid the military, the businessman, the traveler, or any foreign resident in Iceland. Originally published in 1945, the grammar gives reliable information on pronunciation, inflexions, and syntax of the language. The texts are partly grammatical exercises for the beginner, partly colloquial dialogues, or descriptions of customs and manners in Iceland—town and country. The geography and nature of the country is also discussed and elucidated with maps and drawings.

About the Author

Stefán Einarsson (1897-1972) was an Icelandic linguist, literary historian and former professor at Johns Hopkins University.

Reviews

"This beautifully produced book..with its very useful glossary of 203 pages, a detailed and yet clear-cut grammar and the texts, each with an extra word-list, should be an ideal introduction to modern Icelandic."
