So you would agree that this is a typical problem of Icelanders? I mean,
when I start learning old norse from the start as a german student and want
it to use for, let's say "Asatru" and "Reenactment" purposes, it would be a
good idea for me to use the reconstructed, old pronounciation rather than
the modern icelandic?
Would you disagree?
And never forget that help may come
From the most unlikely of quarters
And success rest upon the shoulders
Of those kept shadowed until the time of need.
