Old English recordings

Postby quendidil » Sat Feb 09, 2008 2:00 am

Does anyone know of any good Old English/Anglo-Saxon recordings available? I actually had a good one about 400mb in mp4 format downloaded from bittorrent, but it has sadly perished in one of my formats. The tracker where I got it from (demonoid) is down and the file seems to be unavailable on any other site.

There's Anglo-Saxon Aloud, which you might want to take a look at.

Ooh, thanks!
BTW, are there any resources available for spoken "living" Anglo-Saxon?

What exactly to you mean, people who converse in Anglo-Saxon? I'd be very surprised if that existed, considering AS slowly morphed through a variety of other forms of English. I don't think it had as 'finalized' a form as Latin.

I remember seeing a list of computer terms in Anglo-Saxon years ago, so I think a movement towards spoken Anglo-Saxon still exists? or not

For vocabulary, there's Hu secge ic from seo freo wisdomboc, but I don't know how trustworthy that is ... well I'm not sure trustworthiness really applies here, but I mean I'm not sure how much of this is being made up as they go and how much is serious. There might be something there, though.

I looked around the net and couldn't find much to indicate that anyone anywhere still speaks or tries to speak anglo-saxon. I did find this spoof however

There are still students learning it, hence the Old English Wikipedia just getting out into the 1000 page range. I considered learning it, but instead attempted Gothic.

There is also primer in the Germanic lexicon project. You can get it images only, but I also assembled all of them into a large PDF, though my site where I used to host it is now defunct and I don't have any intention of bringing it back.
