about the book
NEVER BE LOST FOR WORDS AGAIN…WITH THIS BOOK OF LOST WORDS.
Have you ever wanted to wield the silver tongue of Loki – or to hammer home your point like a Thundergod?
Old Norse is the language of legends and the stuff of sagas, the inspiration for Tolkien and Marvel, for award-winning manga and epic videogames. It is the language of cleverly crafted kennings, blood-curdling curses and pithy retorts to Ragnarök.
Old Norse for Modern Times gives you the perfect phrase for every contemporary situation – from memorable movie quotes (“We’re going to need a bigger boat.” Þurfa munu vér skip stærra) to battle-cries to yell on Discord (“Do I look to be in a gaming mood?” Sýnisk þér ek vera í skapi til leika?), from mead hall musings (“This drink, I like it! ANOTHER!” Líkar mér drykkr þessi! ANNAN!) to tried-and-tested pickup lines (“Nice tattoo!“ Fagrt er húðflúrið“).
With over 500 phrases inside (plus the chance to add your own!) it is the perfect guide for Vikings fans, whether they are re-enactors, role-players, or simply in love with Ragnar.
…but in the meantime, seize the helmet by the horns (“Wagner has a lot to answer for.” – Meira mælti Wagner af kappi en viti.) and unleash your inner Norseman.*
* Or woman. This isn’t the 10th Century after all.
