LR004b Icelandic (Part II)

July 25, 2015

In this second episode about Icelandic, Björn demonstrates the various ways to inflect different types of Icelandic words, including names. We talk about certain gender issues, dogs biting men (or the other way around?), the evolution of case, the recycling and invention of words, Icelandic names, a bit of Icelandic politics, and Björn's connection to Björk. Music: Árstíðir – Himinhvel (CC BY-SA 3.0) Erratum: Whenever I use the words "female" or "male" in the context of grammatical gender, it should of course be "feminine" and "masculine". neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
