Old Norse can be studied as the language of the Eddas and the Icelandic sagas; the ancestor of the Scandinavian tongues; or, because of the Viking presence in the British Isles, a major influence on the development of English. But while many of its words are recognisable, the connections are often vague or misleading, and it follows a more complicated grammar than most of its modern relatives. The answer is ultimately memorisation, which is where Liberation Philology Old Norse can help.

Whenever you have a moment to spare, your phone can call up a rolling multiple-choice test that helps you practise Old Norse vocabulary and grammar. Each answer you give is immediately confirmed or corrected, and your knowledge is reinforced by as much repetition as you find useful.

• Vocabulary: 335 levels, each testing your ability to translate ten words between English and Old Norse. Interspersed among these are cumulative levels reviewing what has been learned earlier (for a total of 377 levels).

• Nouns: Tests your ability to parse and to decline all types of Old Norse nouns.

• Pronouns: Tests the declension of Old Norse pronouns.

• Verbs: Tests your ability to parse and to conjugate Old Norse verbs, present and past, indicative and subjunctive, active and middle (revised and expanded in 2020).

An additional Reference module allows you to review the word-list for the vocabulary test, and the paradigms for nouns, verbs, and pronouns.

Please make it more customizable

This would be better if one could create customizable vocabulary lists. I would also like the option to change the order in which cases are displayed in the reference window (for example be able to have Nominative Accusative Dative Genitive) . An option to have a chime or buzzer for audio feedback would be useful. Right now, I don't recommend this app.
