This glossary, which complements several printed sources of its kind, is intended for Anglo-Saxonists and other speakers of English for whom the language of the computer world has become alien and largely incomprehensible. It is intended also for technical writers who strive for greater clarity and simplicity in their writing.

And here, a few simple sentences to help those who just need the basics - a Conversational Old English site.  You just never know when these things might come in handy.

I must admit I have a soft spot for this kind of pointless anachronistic nerdery - thanks ElizaD! (and now that I’ve posted, I can’t be accused of being a sceadugenga...)

Very neat, thanks! I’m going to add this to my list of links, to go with the Niw Englisc link.

That site has given my relationship with my PC a whole new slant, ever since I’ve known that the thing causing it to fall over was a wyrm and the message coming up on screen was laĆ°spel . Whoever created that wordhord was brilliant.

I’ve just tried to go there and got a 404.  Anyone know where the website has gone?

That’s the glossary link (Eliza’s first); bayard wants the second, conversational, link.

That goes to the same site as the glossary link in Eliza’s post, which still works fine.  What bayard was asking about is the “conversational Old English” link.  Searching the web I find numerous references and links to a page called “Instant Old English” by Prof. Catherine Ball at Georgetown; I think this is what Eliza’s link pointed to.[Edit: no, not the same URL at least.] Unfortunately all those links are defunct; apparently it’s been taken down and is no longer among the OE online resources at Georgetown, and Catherine Ball no longer appears to be on the faculty there (or anywhere else, that I could find).
